5A -Jtine 27. Deserted Mine Starting Point For Campaign 1 TM 1 ( )"6 Sunday Gazette-Mail Charleston, West Virginia GRANTSVILLE. Md. ( A P ) - It would be difficult for most people to become excited about this city's garbage dump. But when that dump is an abandoned strip mine and becomes the starting point for a camp|gn to reclaim abandoned mines, state ^fficials sing a different tune. "Aft|r a very frustrating five years, we'veljegun to actually move some earth." said Anthony Abar of the Maryland Bureau of Mines. Seed money for the state's plan to reclaim the mines that pock the face of nearly 4.000 acres of westernmost Maryland was approved in a $5 million bond issue in 1970. Abar explained. But actual work has been delayed for a variety of reasons, including troubles in acquiring property and the need to inventory abandoned mines and develop engineering plans for filling and sealing them. » * » THE GREATEST concern with abandoned mines, state officials say. is the problem of water collecting and filtering through the exposed strata oi coal-bearing earth and leaching thousands of gallons oi acid into waterways in Garrett and Allegheny counties. The site being reclaimed here, an abandoned 40-acre strip mine and deep mine site that until last year served as a public dump, has been leaking 70 pounds of acid each day into nearby Laurel Run. a tributary of the Casselman River. Completion of the $126.000 project will scarcely put a dent, however, in the total job of mine reclamation facing the state. By A 1969 estimate, il will cost $30 million to $50 million to clean up most of the acid this region. Deep mine areas such as the labyrinthine complexes of abandoned tunnels in the Georges Creek area between Frostburg and Westernport in Allegheny can be especially difficult to seal. Abar said "BECAUSE OF THE underground interconnections, deep mines have to be attacked on a regional basis and only after extensive study to determine their configurations. Some suites have gone in and*plugged a mine up. only to have it blow out somewhere else " '« '"..' t '» By the end of 1976, according to Abac,'' the stale is expected to have obligated inure than ?2 million of the initial S5 mjl L , lion bond issue to mine reclamation. The* money is augmented by the Appalachian/ Regional Commission at the rate of S3 from the federal government for each $1 of state monev.
