Landform design is an emerging process used to successfully reconstruct mine land. It allows industry, regulators, and communities to work together to manage costs and risks, minimize liability, and produce progressively reclaimed landscapes with confidence and pride. It builds on hundreds of years of geological and ecological literature and fifty years of mine reclamation. It allows landform design teams to apply this vast body of knowledge to build and reclaim mining landforms. Done well, landform design leads to a positive mining legacy — it is a pillar of sustainable mining.
