The legislature enacted the Aggregate Mine Land Reclamation Act (A.R.S. Title 27, Chapter 6) in 2005. The Act requires aggregate exploration operations and aggregate mining units to submit reclamation plans and financial assurance mechanisms to the Office of the State Mine Inspector. The Act requires the Inspector to make rules consistent with the Act for reclamation of surface disturbances at aggregate exploration operations and mining units, financial assurances, and notice and public meetings. This rulemaking makes the required rules.
