A state-funded abandoned mine land reclamation program for Ohio was realized with the establishment of the Unreclaimed Lands Fund in 1972. The fund is utilized to complete reclamation projects on public and private lands affected by surface mining prior to April 10, 1972. A state severance tax is imposed on active surface mine operators who. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) has started construction to address abandoned mine land (AML) hazards and create recreation space in Jefferson County.

View our recent projects in the AML Program 2019 Annual Accomplishments Report. Indiana has a history of requiring reclamation of coal mined lands. In fact, it was the second state to pass laws to regulate mining in 1941. Because state laws varied, a federal law requiring mine reclamation was passed in 1977 potential to increase acid mine drainage. Maintenance activities will need to be done on a regular basis after the initial reclamation to ensure success. The construction of stabilized access roads will allow access to the site for maintenance without causing erosion problems. Reclaimed mine areas can provide important wildlife habitat
