The conference theme is Enhancing Communities through Reclamation and the technical sessions will cover a broad spectrum of areas ranging from cultural history of mining to advances in technology and new concepts in abandoned mine land reclamation. The National Association of State Land Reclamationists (NASLR) is joining with NAAMLP this year and bringing insights on reclamation to the conference.

All presentations accepted by the technical sessions committee must be delivered to the IT personnel at the conference Sunday, September 25th in PowerPoint format and on a USB so they may be loaded onto computers. A ready room will be provided for speakers to practice their presentations. As in past years everyone presenting at the conference is expected register for the full conference.

We have designed the technical sessions to enable participants to share ideas and promote meaningful conversations about the future of mine reclamation.
