Small Mines: Notification of Commencement of Mining Operations Mobile App
The Small Mines: Notification of Commencement of Mining Operations mobile app is used to document both the commencement of operations and closing of mines.
How does it work?
According to mining industry regulations, the owner, operator, or person in charge of any metal and nonmetal mine must notify the nearest MSHA and Metal and Nonmetal Mine Safety and Health District Office before starting operations or shutting down a mine. The mining notice of intention app provides a helpful form that is easily accessible from any smartphone or tablet, allowing the operator or other contact to submit this notification electronically.
The coal mining app covers the mining operator name, coal mining location, mining permit number, plan of operation, mailing address and other details. Once completed, the owner or operator can save the results electronically for their records.
