Samples of minesoils from 16- and 40-year-old mine spoil piles were analyzed in the laboratory for various chemical and physical properties to ascertain to what extent the material have been influenced by pedogenic processes during their relatively brief time of exposure. Nitrate levels in the minesoils were also measured to determine if a potential hazard exists. Results of the study indicated that both the 16- and 40-year-old materials showed signs of incipient soil development. The data also showed that nitrate levels in the minesoils are higher than in adjacent undisturbed native soils.
