Abandoned Mine Cleanup
This site provides the following information:
- basic information on abandoned mine land (AML) issues
- BLM's efforts to address the concerns
- useful AML tools and reference materials for those involved with AML issues and reclamation.
Over the last 150 years, much of the land managed by the BLM in the West has experienced some form of mining activity, ranging from exploration to full development. In some cases, these activities were not properly abandoned, leaving safety and environmental concerns that BLM must deal with today.
