Reclamation

Reclamation is the final and most satisfying job of mining. During the stripping and mining process there is the continual concern of whether or not there will be a profit. However win or lose, a great deal of money and time must be spent on reclamation.  I look forward to reclamation and seeing the valley's vegetation regrow.
