  • This covers the successes of the BLM's AML program from 2009 to 2011.

  • In 1997, the BLM and the U.S. Forest Service embarked on mutual efforts to address the impacts of hardrock abandoned mine lands (AML). The purposes of this report are threefold: 1) to shed light on abandoned mining sites and their impacts on public lands; 2) to highlight the accomplishments of the BLM, the Forest Service, and project partners in addressing AML problems; and 3) to describe the outlook for future AML reclamation efforts.

  • This provides the policy and strategic program direction framework for BLM to manage the reclamation of abandoned hardrock mine sites on or affecting lands administered by BLM.
