Annual Inspections

Lead agencies must conduct an inspection of each surface mining operation within six months of receiving its annual report, and in no event less than once in any calendar year.  These inspections must be conducted using a form developed by the Department of Conservation and approved by the State Mining and Geology Board.

The Division of Mine Reclamation has updated the Surface Mining Inspection Report form (MRRC-1). The newly revised form was approved by the SMGB at its July 2013 meeting and took effect
July 17, 2013.  In addition, DMR has developed a convenient Lead Agency Inspection Notice Form to assist lead agencies with PRC 2774(b) requiring lead agencies submit a notice with the MRRC-1 Inspection Form.  

Annual Reports

Mining Operation Annual Reports (Annual Reports) form MRRC-2, are required from all mines subject to SMARA.  Regardless of the status of your mining operation, an Annual Report and payment for the applicable reporting fees must be submitted on an annual basis until reclamation is certified complete by both your lead agency and DMR.  In order for an Annual Report to be considered complete and timely, all information requested on the form must be submitted along with payment for the reporting fee.  A copy of the Annual Report must be filed with the respective lead agency by July 1 annually.  For your convenience, DMR posts the updated Annual Report forms online during May of each year.

2016 Forms

Online Annual Reporting System

DMR is excited to announce the launch of online submissions for the Mining Operation Annual Report(s) (Annual Report), form MRRC-2; now available for all mine operators.  Based upon feedback from the 2015 Online Annual Reporting System pilot program, DMR has refined and updated the online reporting system which assigns a unique login code to each California Mine Identification number required to file an Annual Report.  The login code(s) will be mailed out to all mine operators starting May 2, 2017.  If you do not receive a letter with your login code, you are still responsible to file your Annual Report and pay the associated reporting fee by July 3, 2017 using the 2016 Annual Report form listed above.
