Notice of Information Collection, 4640 [E8-1338]

Download as PDF 4640 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 17 / Friday, January 25, 2008 / Notices Regulation Affected: 30 CFR 77.214 (Refuse piles; general). Modification Request: The petitioner requests a modification of the existing standard to permit coarse refuse fill to be constructed over abandoned underground mine openings because the mines are abandoned and all reserves in these mines have been depleted. The petitioner states that: (1) There are no safety issues that might affect any underground miners; (2) surface workers at the coal preparation plant will be protected by clearly identifying the openings and insuring that the openings are sealed and/or provided drainage. The petitioner further states that: (1) The openings at issue have been abandoned since as early as the mid1900’s and as late as the late 1990’s and represent no threat to underground miners because all of the affected mine workings/openings are abandoned; (2) there are no active underground mine workings above or below the abandoned coal seams in this area; and (3) there are no active workings within 2,000 feet of the coarse refuse fill. The petitioner asserts that the proposed alternative method will achieve and guarantee the same measure of protection afforded by the standard. Dated: January 17, 2008.
