ISSUE SUMMARY: MOUNTAINTOP REMOVAL MINING
REVISION DATE: 9/1/02
Mountaintop removal coal mining involves – exactly as the name suggests – the physical removal of a mountaintop to mine the coal located underneath. Used by coal mining companies in the Appalachia region of the U.S. (principally West Virginia, along with Kentucky and Virginia), it involves using explosives and “draglines” (large machines that can move more than 100 tons of material at a time) to remove overlying rock and soil, which is then simply pushed down the mountainside into nearby valleys (and associated streams and wetlands) to create so-called “valley fills.” (It is estimated that valley fills have buried some 1500 miles of streams thus far.)
