      contains about percent of the billion short tons of strippable lignite estimated to occur in the Gulf Coast Region of the United States (Lupens, ; Hossner and O'Shay, ). The Mississippi lignite is suited to surface mining because of the shallow depths to deposits and the unconsolidated overburden. Very limited. The Railroad Commission's newest regulatory division, Surface Mining and Reclamation, began operation January 1, , as a result of the "Texas Surface Mining and Reclamation Act" approved by the 64th Texas Legislature in June, The act regulated mining and reclamation for coal, lignite, and uranium ore mines.

      the adjacent Dolet Hills Lignite Mine, a 30, acre site located in DeSoto Parish, Louisiana. In , pursuant to authority delegated under the Louisiana Surface Mining and Reclamation Act, the Louisiana Office of Conservation approved the utility company permittee’s application for the Dolet Hills Lignite Mine. The. Lignite coal mining has been an important part of the history and economy of North Dakota since the first commercial coal mine opened in Mineable lignite reserves in North Dakota are estimated at approximately billion tons, which is enough to last over years at the current rate of mining .

Duties include State and Federal level permitting of surface coal mines on behalf of North American Coal in the Gulf Coast Region (Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, and Texas) and working with the Corps of Engineers, U.S. Fish and Wildlife, Railroad.

Much of the lignite is near enough to the surface to be removed by conventional surface mining techniques. Other characteristics of the region which should make reclamation programs successful.

Reclamation of lignite mined lands in the active mining regions of the Northern Great Plains and Gulf Coast Region of the USA are reviewed. Lignite, an organic sedimentary rock (brown coal), is actively mined in Louisiana, Montana, North Dakota and Texas.

The geology, climate and natural vegetation of these areas are by: 2. Increased surface mining in the early s led to passage of the first reclamation laws in the s in the East.

The U.S. Government's Official Website for the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSMRE).

OSMRE's business practices are to reclaim abandoned mine lands (Title IV), regulate active coal mines (Title V), and apply sound science through technology transfer. Lignite, often referred to as brown coal, is a soft, brown, combustible, sedimentary rock formed from naturally compressed is considered the lowest rank of coal due to its relatively low heat has a carbon content around % percent.

The Abandoned Mine Land (AML) Reclamation Program uses fees paid by present-day coal mining companies to reclaim coal mines abandoned before This makes these areas safer for people and the environment.

The Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act (SMCRA) ofas amended, created this program. Lignite is coal. Formed over millions of years by decomposing plant material, it’s abundant, low-cost, reliable and environmentally sustainable.

Evaluation of the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act and its impact on lignite mining in the Gulf region identified several major environmental issues [38]. These include land disturbance, changes in land use, deterioration of air quality, impacts on surface and ground water, and impacts on endangered or threatened species.

The West Gulf Coastal Plain of south-central Arkansas is a lowland separated from the uplands of the Ouachita Mountains Province of northern Arkansas by the Fall Line, which is the northern limit of lignite-bearing Gulf Coastal Plain sediments (Figure 2) (Renken, ).Crowley's Ridge is a prominent linear topographic feature, trending north-south across the state with to ft of relief.

A geologic map of part of the Gulf Coast coal-bearing region. Current mine permit areas and historic mine locations are shown. The location of the drill hole (adjacent to line A–A0) used as the stratigraphic section (Figure 2) and the lines of cross section (A–A0 and B–B0) for Figure 5 are shown.

An understanding of the problems will permit mine operators to implement preventive measures before mining commences. Concern over potential environmental degradation from present and future lignite mining in Texas has led the Texas Legislature to pass the "Texas Surface Mining and Reclamation Act" (Texas Legislature, ).

Department of Commerce. Lignite is very abundant in the Gulf Coast region where about 23 billion tons of recoverable lignite are believed to ex ist. It has been estimated that Mississippi has approx­ imately 5 billion tons of mineable lignite which is equiv­ alent to 10 billion barrels of oil.

Funding for the program comes from a fee on mined coal in funds are deposited in the Abandoned Mine Land Reclamation Trust Fund.

The Texas AML program submits grant requests to the Office of Surface Mining for prioritized reclamation projects. The first Texas AML project was completed in northeast Texas in The capital investment for overburden removal equipment, the size under consideration for the region, is projected to be a third to one half the total mine project investment.

Therefore, the analysis of the most efficient system or combination of systems must be evaluated in these future Gulf Coast lignite mines.
