European Commission This document is an extract from the above 288 page document that was commissioned by European Union to describes current Best Practice for management of wastes from extractive industries. The pages included in the attached document acknowledge the application of Geomorphic Reclamation as BAT for the landform design.

Geomorphic design and modelling at catchment scale for best mine rehabilitation – The Drayton mine example (New South Wales, Australia)

G.R. Hancock, JF Martín Duque, G.R. Willgoose This paper evaluates the complementary capabilities of landscape evolution modelling (SIBERIA) and geomorphic design software (Natural Regrade with GeoFluv) at the Drayton mine in the Hunter Valley of NSW, Australia.

Evaluating sediment production from native and fluvial geomorphic reclamation watersheds at La Plata Mine

N. Bugosh, E. Epp This paper compares the sediment run-off between natural landforms, and mining landforms that have been rehabilitated using the GeoFluv method. The paper clearly identifies the effectiveness of the GeoFluv method to minimise sediment run-off in rehabilitated landscapes.

Dr. Yaron Ziv visits USA Natural Regrade reclamation sites

Dr. Yaron Ziv of Ben-Gurion University of Negev, Israel, toured Natural Regrade reclamation sites on March 2017 with Nicholas Bugosh, developer of the GeoFluv™ reclamation design method that is used in Carlson Software’s Natural Regrade. Bugosh accompanied Dr. Ziv as they viewed more than 2000 acres of mining-disturbed lands at active and fully reclaimed mine sites […]
