Title: Lime retention in anthracite coal-breaker refuse

Description: Hydrated lime was applied to extremely acid anthracite coal-breaker refuse at rates of 2.5 and 5.0 tons per acre. The lime raised the pH to neutral range, and this range was still in evidence 7 years after treatment. The pH readings decreased with the depth of the refuse profile, and below 9 inches they approximated those of the control plots. The 2.5-tons-of-lime-per-acre treatment was almost as effective as the 5.0-ton treatment. Application of lime in establishing vegetation on coal-breaker refuse is recommended and encouraged.
