Hardrock Mining: Information on State Royalties and the Number of Abandoned Mine Sites and Hazards: Congressional Testimony
Robin M. Nazzaro (au)
The General Mining Act of 1872 helped open the West by allowing individuals to obtain exclusive rights to mine billions of dollars worth of gold, silver, and other hardrock (locatable) minerals from fed. lands without having to pay a fed. royalty. For years, some mining operators abandoned land used in their mining operations, creating environmental and physical safety hazards. To curb further growth in the number of abandoned hardrock mines on fed. lands, in 1981, the Dept. of the Interiorís Bureau of Land Mgmt. (BLM) began requiring mining operators to reclaim BLM land disturbed by these operations. This testimony focuses on the: (1) royalties states charge; and (2) number of abandoned hardrock mine sites and hazards. Illustrations.
