West Virginia Mining - Abandoned Mine Lands


No License Restrictions

From the site: "Abandoned mine features compiled by the Office of Abandoned Mine Lands and Reclamation (AMLR) of the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection. The AMLR eliminates damage that occurred from mining operations prior to August 3, 1977 and is funded by the AML fund. It corrects hazardous conditions and reclaims abandoned and forfeited mine sites. Typical AML features include highwalls, portals, refuse piles, and mining structures such as tipples.

AML features were digitized from AMLR source materials by the WVU Department of Geology and Geography and the WVU Natural Resource Analysis Center. Published in 1996."
