Mining and Reclamation Symposium is This Week in W.Va.


West Virginia University and the West Virginia Mine Drainage Task Force are presenting a symposium this week on mining and reclamation regulations and practices.

The event is Tuesday and Wednesday at the Morgantown Marriott at Waterfront Place.

The program will be presented by university representatives and other mining and reclamation experts.

Soil science professor Jeff Skousen says researchers present findings at the annual meeting, and industry representatives share techniques they apply at their mine sites and results.

The university said it expects about 250 people to attend from neighboring countries and across the U.S.
