This report discusses the technical and economic feasibility of daylighting abandoned deep coal mines as a method to abate acid mine drainage by employing common surface mining and backfilling techniques. Data on the present water quality of Lost Run, Garrett County, Maryland was obtained and used for the evaluation of using daylighting as a method to improve water quality. Other criteria were thickness, quality and amount of coal in-place. A mining and reclamation plan was developed for the daylighting. This plan was devised based on the acidity of overburden material, the estimated coal in-place, and erosion control methods to reduce siltation.
