Nevada’s history is inextricably linked to mining. Gold, silver, and other precious and industrial ores have drawn prospectors from all over the world, and many of their descendants remain in the Silver State to this day. The problem is, many of these mines were left open when the ore lodes petered out. You hear about people falling down abandoned mine shafts and wells frequently on the news, and tragically, many of these innocent victims are children. To reduce or eliminate the risks, these abandoned mines need to be reclaimed.
Soil-Tech specializes in this kind of earth reclamation. The entire point of mine reclamation is to make the surrounding area look like there was never a mine there to begin with. Not only does this vastly increase the safety of the area, it also eliminates the ugly scars mining has left on the natural beauty of the Southwest.
Some of the dangers associated with mines include colorless, tasteless, odorless gasses such as carbon monoxide which accumulate in mines. There are documented cases of people dying as close to a mine entrance as fifty feet. Also, mine shafts can be as steep as seventy to eighty degrees and drop hundreds, or even thousands, of feet. Clearly the risk is not worth the thrill, and Soil-Tech is a leader in mine safety and reclamation.
Like any other form of construction, mine reclamation includes dust. This is an unavoidably side effect of any construction operations, especially in an arid environment like the desert. Soil-Tech also specializes in dust control, to help keep air quality high while stabilizing native soils to help ensure they won’t go where they’re not supposed to. In Clark County, especially, dust control is a big concern, and comes with hefty fines for people who violate dust control ordinances. Soil-Tech has the experience and know-how to help mitigate all of these problems.
So if you happen to out and about in the natural beauty of the Southwest, the first and most important thing to remember if you encounter an abandoned mine is not to go in. Exploring abandoned mines without the proper safety equipment can be fatal. Then contact Soil-Tech for mine and landscape reclamation services to restore the land to its natural beauty while making sure people stay safe. There are plenty of safe ways to get a thrill; abandoned mines should never be considered one of them.
