Aims and objectives
To apply reclamation and remediation theory to different problem sites so as to provide experience in the practical and
economic constraints which arise in implementing projects.
Students completing the module should i) appreciate the limitations which exits in data collection in site assessment,
reclamation and remediation schemes ii)have experience of interpreting data and reporting on realistic projects.
This module consists of a series of case studies, based on real sites, which cover a range of practical reclamation and
remediation problems. The outcome of these case studies will be reports prepared within a client-consultancy framework.
