OSM’s Abandoned Mine Land Inventory is:
Incomplete Only high priority (Priority 1 and 2) coal mining related problems have been systematically inventoried. These are the primary problems addressed by OSMs Abandoned Mine Land Program. Because resources are limited, States and Indian tribes have not always been able to inventory all their high priority (Priority 1 and 2) coal mining related problems. Please contact individual States/Indian tribes for additional information. Inventory only includes problems eligible for funding. Many problems are not eligible for funding.
Dynamic Ineligible problems become eligible. This can happen when a problem deteriorates to the point that it becomes a public hazard, when economic development brings people in contact with what had been remote sites, or some other factor changes. New problems arise. Examples include fires, subsidence holes, and landslides.
