DMR Handbooks

The Department of Mining and Reclamation handbooks are provided for a comprehensive guide to understanding the processes of our various departments.  They are basically administrative in nature; however, they also establish procedures, included technical information, interpretations, and/or memorandums. 

In an effort to provide handbooks that are easy to use and not too voluminous, sample forms are not included.  Forms may be obtained from our DMR website.

Below is a list of Guidance manuals that are not included in the Mining and Reclamation Handbook selection.
