Surface Coal Mining and Reclamation Operations Permit Applications

In an effort to provide the citizens of Illinois a more timely review of applications for coal mining permits the Office of Mines and Minerals has established an initiative to make available all new permit and significant revision applications for review on the Land Reclamation web site.

Applications for surface coal mining and reclamation operations will continue to be available for review at the county courthouse where mining is proposed and at the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, Office of Mines and Minerals, Springfield, Illinois office. Applications for mining operations proposed in the southern part of Illinois are available for review at our Benton office.

Please contact the Land Reclamation Division for any problems you may have accessing these files or for the nearest office location which you may review an application.For more information regarding the Land Reclamation Division, or permit process, visit the Land Relcamation home page, or you may email us at mailto:dnr.mmlrd@illinois.gov
