Instruction Bulletin No. 2014-015

To:   All Washington Office and Field Office Officials
 
From:  Assistant Director, Renewable Resources and Planning
 
Subject: Availability of Abandoned Mine Land Program Policy Manual MS-3720.

This Information Bulletin (IB) transmits the revised manual section MS-3720, Abandoned Mine Land Program Policy.  The manual section and handbook contain national policies, processes, and procedures for Abandoned Mine Land program (AML).

Bureau of Land Management (BLM) personnel must review and implement the policies, procedures, and guidance contained within these documents.  Field officials will ensure that all BLM employees with surface management responsibilities receive this IB and the associated manual and handbook and become familiar with the contents of both documents.

The first manual section for the AML program was released in 2007.  This revised manual reflects policy released after that time.  The policies, procedures, and guidance outlined in this manual section may differ from existing practices and therefore require careful review.

The manual is available online at: http://www.blm.gov/pgdata/etc/medialib/blm/wo/Information_Resources_Management/policy/blm_manual.Par.60872.File.dat/MS%207250.pdf.  Printed copies may be obtained from the Washington Office, Division of Environmental Quality and Protection.

For additional information, please contact Erinn Shirley, Acting AML Program Lead, at 202-912-7132 or eshirley@blm.gov
