The report reviews the establishment of vegetative cover as a candidate method for reclaiming mineral ore waste heaps. It begins by describing the location and properties of spoils and tailings from mining and ore beneficiation, and briefly reviews present methods for controlling dust emissions from them. Most of the report develops fundamentals for establishing vegetative cover, and gives a detailed review of case histories of both successful and unsuccessful revegetation. The report also contains a catalog of individual plant species. This mass of information can be used to provide general guidelines for establishing vegetative cover.
