The aim of the study was to evaluate the chronological sequence of vegetation establishment on the bottom parts of the western, southern and northern slopes of Dam 4 and 5 of the Chemwes gold mine tailings complex. The species composition, biomass, frequency, cover and density were measured and sampled by quadrate and transect methods. The hypothesis was that the vegetation would increase proportional to the age of rehabilitation. The study strongly supports this for some species and aspects, such as and . The frequency will depend on the seed mixtures and type of rehabilitation.
