This final rule amends the regulations to--

    • Improve the clarity and organization;
    • Address technical advances in mining;
    • Incorporate policies developed after we issued the previous regulations 20 years ago; and
    • Better protect natural resources and our Nation's natural heritage lands from the diverse impacts of mining.

We intend these regulations to prevent unnecessary or undue degradation of BLM-administered lands by mining operations authorized under the mining laws.
