BLM will develop policy to encourage recovery of
abandoned coal refuse with uncertain federal title.

MMS and BLM have completed an evaluation of the magnitude of the problem
on Federal lands. A report was presented to the MMS Royalty Policy
Committee in October 2002. The consensus of the Committee was that the problem will be handled on a case-by-case basis. IM 2003-159, April 23, 2003
(http://www.blm.gov/nhp/efoia/wo/fy03/im2003-159.htm) articulated the BLM
policy on coal wastes. The Solicitor’s memorandum of October 15, 2001 was
attached. (http://www.blm.gov/nhp/efoia/wo/fy03/im2003-159attach1.pdf)
