Land management

Restored exploration sites are re-seeded to grow native plants and attract turkey, deer and other wildlife.


Large haul trucks are used to remove contaminated soils and later replace soils with clean dirt in remediation sites.


Exploration is an important way of meeting the domestic demand for minerals. Workers wear personal protective equipment at exploration sites, which are typically no bigger than a quarter-acre in size.


Heavy equipment is disassembled, lowered into the mine and reassembled for use 1,000 feet underground. Here an employee loads ore into a haul truck by operating a front-end loader by remote control.


Heavy equipment such as diamond drills are used underground to help locate, access and extract ore deposits.
