Abstract

Tin mining is one of the land uses that causes physical damage to the land. Degraded land due to the mining activity requires a conservation. Conservation of post-tin mining land in Perimping Sub Watershed consists of reclamation and revegetation by planting kinds of fast-growing plants and cover crops. As land management, conservation is conducted to establish the diversity of land cover and to recover the land quality to be more productive for the local people. This study aimed to analyze the land cover change in land conservation of post-tin mining area. Moreover, also to identify the condition of post-tin mining land which has been conserved. Land cover map of 2011, 2014, and 2017 were produced from Google Earth imagery. Field validation was conducted to determine the existence of cover types on conservation land and interviews were conducted to find other impact of post-tin mining land conservation for local people. The result shows that land cover change in post-tin mining land conservation area over 6 years dominated by escalation of land cover such as mining, plantations. Monitoring of land cover change in conservation area is important to measure the effectivity of land conservation in post-tin mining area.
