Missouri Mining Rules

Section 444.520 creates the eight member Missouri Mining Commission. The commission adopts and promulgates rules and regulations pursuant to Chapters 444,500 to 444.780 RSMo, to strike balance between mining of minerals and reclamation of land subject to mining.   

Department staff worked with stakeholders to develop a proposed rule amendment to 10 CSR 40-10.020 Permit Application Requirements.  The proposed rule amendment will increase acreage, site and maximum fees for Industrial Mineral Open Pit and In-Stream Sand and Gravel Operation mining more than five thousand (5,000) tons per year. The proposed rule amendment will clarifying public notice certified mail out requirements, aligning the rules with a name change of a federal government agency and changing a recommendation to a decision by the director for permit issuance or denial.
