Search for Abandoned Mines Location Sites

The AML Division assesses abandoned mine lands for reclamation throughout the state. Sites are categorized into groups according to eminent harm to public safety, environmental safety, etc. and ranked from high to low priority, for reclamation. To see if an abandoned site is in your area choose your city/town or county from the drop-down menus below.

The drop-down for city/town lists all cities and towns in the vicinity of abandoned sites. If the city or town you're looking for is not on the list, it means that no abandoned sites are in its vicinity.

If you have any questions regarding the search you can e-mail AML staff or phone them at 217-782-0588.
