Description
 
The Mining Law of 1872 encouraged development of the West by opening up federal land to exploration, extraction, and development of hardrock minerals such as gold, silver, and copper. Because mining creates the potential for serious health, safety, and environmental hazards, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Forest Service have processes for reviewing mine plans submitted by operators to help prevent and mitigate these hazards. This report examines (1) the number of mine plans BLM and the Forest Service approved from fiscal years 2010 through 2014; and (2) challenges that have affected the length of time for BLM and the Forest Service to complete the review process, as well as actions these agencies have taken to address these challenges. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
