Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Although the development and utilization of mineral resources have played a huge role in promoting social and economic development, it has also brought serious ecological environmental problems, such as geological environmental problems, ecological environmental problems and environmental pollution problems. The geological environment problems mainly include dam collapse, slope instability, debris flow, collapse, water level drop, water gushing and drainage, collapse deformation, desertification, etc. Ecological environmental problems mainly include land occupation and destruction, deforestation, increased water and soil loss, consumption of water resources, reduction in biodiversity, disturbance of wildlife habitat and change in landscape. Environmental pollution problems mainly include air pollution, water pollution, solid pollution, acoustic pollution, radiation pollution, soil pollution, etc. Therefore, it is very necessary to explore the environmental governance and ecological restoration of the mining area.

This Special Issue aims to collect contributions from all aspects of mine ecological restoration research, including (but not limited to) laboratory and field research related to the following aspects: (i) green, safe and environmentally friendly mine ecological restoration technology; (ii) cooperative repair technology combining multiple methods; and (iii) final recovery of useful substances from plant/microbial biomass or extracts.
