Here's a shot of one of the more current projects we did.
Albeit, about 6 months old from this
Most of the darker soil is new "cover" soil, and the re-seeding process hasn't set in yet.
Some of the removal areas were between 60-100' in depth.
We also need to take into account natural drainages, and must design re-constructed creek channels in the process.
Note the "historical stack" in the upper right side of the pic. That was a tough one to work around. [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]
Also note the "historical rock wall" just above where we're parked.
I have no idea why that needed to be preserved. [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
Incidentally, we don't do the "grunt" work. Just the design and construction oversight.
Something about a "conflict of interest" I think. [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]
OK, enough about mine reclamation for today.
I'm going to go play, and maybe see the races in Belgrade on their dirt track
this evening! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
