SFAA Addresses Concerns in Proposed Federal Hard Rock Mining Rules 

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has withdrawn the rules that it had proposed to establish financial responsibility requirements for hard rock mining operations for metals and non-metallic fuel minerals to implement §108(b) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA). Surety bonds would have been accepted to meet the requirement. The financial responsibility would have had to cover response costs, health assessment costs, and natural resource damages. The proposed rules set forth a formula for determining the amount of financial responsibility required.
