Good morning,

I am interested in long-burrning, in situ coal fires. In furtherance of this, I am hoping to find a database of Canadian mine reclamation sites -- preferably complete with incident or status reports and descriptions of specific problems.



I'm doing this for a mapping project I'm working on, not for the purposes of exploring. I heavily discourage anyone from poking around in abandoned mines, for obvious reasons. I have already cobbled together a map of data from a bunch of helpful provincial-government experts, but it comprises only sites in a few western provinces. Any help folks can give me in finding either a national data set or info on individual mine sites will be appreciated.



I've poked around a very small bit in the Federal Contaminated Sites Inventory, but I'm hoping there might be something a bit more specific or targeted out there -- something more like a Canadian equivalent of the United States' Abandoned Mine Load Inventory System (AMLIS) database.


Any pointers?



(Admins: Feel free to move this thread if there's a better area for it.)

Check with the provincial government environmental bureaus in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland/Labrador. Both provinces' had extensive coal mining operations in the past.
