Klenovnik open pit mine in the Kostolac coal basin was closed after coal reserves had been depleted. The land reclamation and renovation project is in process. The key concern is selection of the land reclamation method. Considering objectives of the reclamation project and the environmental conditions, 10 alternative scenarios are offered based on analysis of the influences and the project feasibility criteria. The ranging of the alternatives and the sound selection of the best scenario is possible using the multi-attribute decision making techniques Promethee and Electre.
