Abstract

•The effect of organic amendments and mulches in mine soils was assessed after 5 years.•Changes induced by treatments on soil biochemical and microbial properties were evaluated.•Combinations of organic amendments and mulches increased enzyme activities.•The growth of microbial biomass was only due to organic amendments.•Microbial composition of restored soils has not converged to undisturbed soils yet.
