Largescale surface mining commenced in the 1920s with the development of mechanized earthmoving equipment. By 1940 half of Oklahoma's annual coal production was recovered by surface mining, and at the end of the twentieth century 95 percent of the state's coal production came from surface mines.
This handbook on surface strip coal mining serves as a general introduction to the subject of mining, specifically surface strip coal mining. It is intended as handbook for engineers who are new to the field of mining engineering, or for students who are entering the field with little prior knowledge.

The PH brand continues to be the undisputed leader in surface mining equipment, used in virtually every major mine worldwide. The brand's product line continues to grow and provide solutions to mining's toughest challenges.
North Canton Strip Mine is a proposed 1,084acre surface mine by Chicagobased Capital Resource Development Company, and would be located a mile north of Canton Lake in Fulton County, Illinois. Canton Lake is a drinking water source for 20,000 residents, and the mine is being opposed by Canton Area Citizens for Environmental Issues (CACEI).
EPA promulgated the Mineral Mining and Processing Effluent Guidelines and Standards (40 CFR Part 436) in 1975, and amended the regulation in 1976, 1977, 1978, and regulation covers wastewater discharges from mine drainage, mineral processing operations and stormwater runoff.

Inadequate understanding of postmining strata behavior and the associated hydrologic consequences of mining in both surface and underground mines affects mine permitting, mine development, environmental mitigation, and postmining land use, including use for waste management.
These workings are linked to the surface and serve as a secondary escape way. The Company plans to extend development from this zone pending completion of the present development work on the north western seam of the 200foot level. We believe that there is an additional mineralized segment of the vein near the surface above this area.

The City zoning code (TMC ) addresses mineral resource lands by (1) protecting these lands from adjacent uses in TMC by stating that any residential use planned within 400 feet of a surface mine must acknowledge its existence, legality, and future use; and (2) by making surface mining a conditional use in all zones.
Open pit mines can be used in coal mining, and they are used extensively in "hard rock" mining for ores such as metal ores, copper, gold, iron, aluminum, and many minerals. In a open pit coal mine, the pit bottom would be the bottom mined coal seam elevation, since it is usually feasible to extract multiple seams when surface mining coal.
