Flotation waste is disposed of into a canyon type of dump. Discharge has been done in layers for more than twenty-five years that has led to the present state of the tailing dump. Flotation of copper ore is one of the production process in the Buchim Copper Mine which seriously disturbs the surrounding land. The drastic disturbance has severely changed the chemical and physical properties of the dump which entails the need for reclamation of the newly created surrounding. Technical and biological reclamation have been carried out for several years through several phases and projects. The experiences obtained during activities undertaken so far and the new activities and ideas envisaged to be carried out in the future will contribute to efficient actions for biological reclamation or general revitalization of the areas affected by negative impact of the tailing dump.
