Process of Renewal

Removal, originally uploaded by jkorpi.

In my search for information on the reclamation of mines I ran into the “Strip Mine Operators Handbook.” With its black letters and yellow flimsy cover, the appearance of the book could pass as “Strip Mining for Dummies.” As for information, it’s a gold mine of material on regulations set by the state of Ohio on mine operators and the expectations they have of the companies to follow the rules. What they do with the information from there is something I hope to explore in my documentary. The above illustration is a suggestion on the best way to return the land in order to prevent soil erosion.
