    Oct 03, 2012 Overburden materials (bi-products of coal processing) are often used to reclaim highwalls and valley-fill impoundments. These sites are a particular challenge to vegetate. The common practice for reclaiming these areas is to apply a minimum soil layer of 18-24 inches as a “cap” on top of the overburden material prior to seeding
