The Kentucky Division of Abandoned Mines
(KYDAML) is soliciting public comment on a
proposed Abandoned Mine Land Enhancement Rule Reclamation Project near the
community of Payne Gap, in Letcher County.
The project is being proposed pursuant to
guidelines in 30 CFR 874.17, and the Commonwealth of Kentucky’s Abandoned Mine
Land Reclamation Plan. The Division will accept comments from the public until close of
business on December 19, 2018. Any person
or group may submit comments in writing
through the United States Postal Service or
via email.

The project involves a proposed cooperative
reclamation effort between the Kentucky Department for Natural Resources (DNR) and a
contractor to remove coal refuse material from
an abandoned coal refuse dump. The refuse
material was deposited by previous pre-law
mining operations. The project proposes to
remove the refuse material using suitable
equipment and transport it to a local permitted
preparation plant.

After refuse removal operations are completed, the former dump area will be regraded
and revegetated in a manner described in the
project narrative.

You will nd a description of the proposed
project and plan maps on the Internet at http://
