Welcome to the AML Portal—a partnership that spans federal, state and local efforts, dedicated to raising awareness about abandoned mine lands. Abandoned mines generally include a range of mining impacts or features that may pose a threat to water quality, public safety, and/or the environment. For many abandoned mines, no financially viable responsible parties exist. AML programs work to eliminate or reduce the dangers to public health, safety, and the environment as a result of impacts related to abandoned mine lands.
It is our hope that through increased awareness, education and action we can work together to reclaim these lands and eliminate the dangers and environmental hazards they pose.
