Background and Objective: Activities at mining soil induced extreme complication for environmental, physics, chemical and biology. Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi (AMF) is mutualism symbiosis between fungi and roots of spermatophyta plants. The aim of this study was to assess indigenous AMF in mining contaminated sites Bukit Ngalau PT Semen Padang. The AMF Indigenous were assessed by direct field sampling and trap culture technique. Materials and Methods: The symbiosis may affect several other factors that influence the plants ecology, such as water availability, access to other nutrients, grazing resistance and tolerance to soil pathogens and pollutants. Results: Identification of indigenous AMF is a necessary step in a phytoremedial strategy in rehabilitation, especially in post mining soil. Conclusion: The AMF identified fell within Glomus, Gigaspora and Acaulospora taxa. Glomus was the dominant taxa with the highest spore abundance (38/50 g soil) compared to Gigaspora and Acaulospora.
