Ecofriendly coal mines. Think about this. The volume of coal extracted compares to an equivalent void volume underground. On this basis (once allowing for subsidence), we estimate that the abandoned mines of the UK contain around 2bn cubic metres of water at temperatures which are constantly around 1216°C, and in some instances higher still.
The Abandoned Mine Land, or AML, section is a part of the Land Reclamation Program, or LRP, which also administers Missouri's reclamation laws for active mines. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources is the administrative authority working through the Land Reclamation Commission.

The UK has a legacy of pollution caused by discharges from abandoned coal mines, with the potential for further pollution by new discharges as groundwaters continue to rebound to their natural levels.
The Coal Authority maintain the liability for the UK abandoned mines and currently pump water from several coalfields to protect aquifers and prevent emergence at unwanted locations. They estimate that the water pumped for operational reasons contains around 80MW of heat, which is currently unused.

Abandoned mines exist throughout the country, with approximately 300,000 abandoned mines located in the Appalachian region. Abandoned mines create safety concerns for active underground mining operations and surface facilities.

Abandoned mine methane (AMM) is the gas remaining in abandoned coal mines in coal seams that have been disturbed by longwall mining. The quantity of AMM released depends on various factors including the volume of
In a surprising role reversal, abandoned coal mines are now being considered as a potential new low carbon heat source. Exciting developments such as ground based solar installations and power efficiencies on former colliery sites are also saving the Coal Authority £ million this year alone.
The history of the American west is one of cowboys and miners. Mining camps sprang up almost over night, then abandoned almost as quickly. Tragically many of these sites are being destroyed by vandals, while others at the hands of our government in the name of "mine safety".
