Analysis of Surface Coal Mine Spoil Bulk Density
Several strip mine spoils were examined to better understand their physical nature. Holes were drilled in spoils representing a variety of overburden removal methods. The relationship between bulk spoil density and mining method, spoil age, spoil depth, particle size, and lithoype is presented.
