Abandoned Mine Lands Safety and Education
Every year people are injured or killed in and around abandoned mine facilities. Mining sites have been left behind by current and past mining. Ways to prevent accidents involve educating the public and provide safety information to diminish the chances of accidents caused by abandoned mines. For instance:

  • Keep away from mine hazards
  • Respect signs
  • Follow safety alerts
  • Report Abandoned Mine Lands 
  • Keep someone with you all the times

Being safe around abandoned mines is important to prevent accidents. BLM and its partners are working together to safeguard the lives and wellbeing of individuals who come in contact with dangerous sites.
