The US Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of requires mining companies to: pay an increase in taxes corresponding to the amount of spoil on each site restore most surface-mined land by grading it and replanting it complete a health assessment on subsurface mine workers each year.

      Option B, store most surface mined land by grading and replanting itp. Explanation: Mine reclamation is a process in which land that has been used earlier for mining is to be restored to make it usable (both naturally and economically) Hence, this regulation came into being to mandate reclamation of land that has been used for mining. Excess spoil means spoil material disposed of in a location other than the mined-out area; provided that spoil material used to achieve the approximate original contour or to blend the mined-out area with the surrounding terrain in accordance with §§ (d) and (d) of this chapter in non-steep slope areas shall not be considered.

Restoration of surface-mined lands is at the forefront of environmental concerns. The value of turning mined land into productive land has aesthetic, social, and economic implications to society. Along with a growing worldwide trend toward the reclamation of surface-mined land has evolved the relatively new concept of reclamation preplanning.
