Mining and reclamation of a central Florida forested wetland: a case study / By James Reid. Boyle. Abstract. Includes bibliographical references (p. 23).Mode of access: Internet Topics: Wetland conservation, Reclamation of land, Phosphate mines and Author: James Reid. Boyle. After the first growing season, results suggest that mixed swamp vegetation typical of floodplains may be the most suitable forested wetland community for settling pond reclamation.

Mining operations are subject to Environmental Resource Permitting (ERP) requirements unless they are specifically grandfathered. Projects associated with mining operations for phosphate or fuller’s earth that are located on land that was included in a conceptual reclamation plan or modification submitted prior to July 1, , are grandfathered from the ERP rules pursuant to Section

The Mining and Mitigation Program administers reclamation and stormwater management programs for mining operations in Florida, including heavy minerals. Reclamation standards for heavy minerals mining are detailed in Part II of Chapter , Part III of Chapter , Florida Statutes (F.S.), and Chapter 62C, Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.).

The Bureau of Mines initiated a program to address short- and long- term objectives of wetlands restoration as an option for reclamation of lands mined for phosphate. The short-term objectives were to identify a suitable wetland test site, initiate an extensive premining monitoring plan, develop an acceptable mining plan, and recontour and revegetate the test site. If approval is given, then the mining can begin. As mining is completed, the reclamation process begins. Phosphate mining disturbs about 5,, acres of land annually; approximately % of these lands are isolated wetlands or wetlands connected to waters of the state, according to the Florida Bureau of Mine Reclamation.
