These regulations describe standards relevant to reclamation that must be followed both during and after the completion of mining in a given area. An operator who wishes to engage in nonmetallic mining must obtain a mining reclamation permit, which sets standards for the eventual reclamation of the site. Additional provisions apply for mining for transportation purposes and mining that occurs near waterways. Subchapter II of these regulations sets standards for oil and gas exploration and production. Exploration requires a license from the Department of Natural Resources and cannot extend beneath the beds of the Great Lakes or of bays or harbors adjacent to the Great Lakes.
