Reclaiming Minnesota's Minelands covers all aspects of "recycling" lands that have been mined in Minnesota in a colorful, user-friendly, and information-packed publication.

Included are basic mining and reclamation facts, taconite/metallic mineral/sand and gravel/peat mining reclamation, information on the importance of planning, careers and research, two experiments ("Acid, Base or Neutral--Can You Tell Just by Looking" and "Does Your Soil Hold Water"), other activities, and a glossary.

It is presented in a 12 page, tabloid format most suitable for students in grades 4-6. A single free copy is available upon request. Educators can obtain classroom sets.
