A reclamation bond in the amount of $6.3 million has been posted with the Office of Surface Mining, Reclamation, and Enforcement. The bond amount was recently increased from $5.2 million to account for higher reclamation costs as time has elapsed. Reclamation costs are calculated by OSMRE to account for the full cost of cutting, filling, grading, topsoil, replanting, etc. A reclamation bond has been in place since the commencement of mining in 1986.
