A mining reclamation model based on geomorphic principles, called ‘catch-ments on slopes’, is described. The model establishes an expert handling of open-cast mining runoff by means of a desing which splits off the slope landforms in small catchments. Aditionally, criteria for the handling of su-perficial deposits and soils are integrated. A clay slope quarry reclamation following this model was executed during the Autumn of 2008 at La Higuera (Segovia). The monitoring of the reclaimed surface shows a success of the reclamation in erosion terms.
