9. Describe how spoil material not backfilled into the excavation(s) will be reclaimed.
10. If basins or traps are used for sediment control, describe how such structures will be reclaimed.
11. In exploration sites that are not backfilled, the final allowable maximum surface gradient for excavations or spoil in soil,
sand, or other unconsolidated or unstable saprolitic materials is a 3H:1V (18 degrees) slope. How will the surface of
these exploration sites be restored?
12. State the final vertical height (measuring from toe of slope to original ground surface) of excavations not completely
backfilled to original ground surface.
13. Describe the plan for revegetation or other surface treatment of affected area(s). This plan should include type of

YOU ARE NOTIFIED THAT:
1. The explorer must file an application to modify the reclamation plan in the event actual reclamation varies from that set
forth herein above, and
YOU ARE FURTHER NOTIFIED THAT:
2. Section 48-20-130 states, “If at any time the department finds that reclamation of the permit area is not proceeding in
accordance with the reclamation plan and that the operator (explorer) has failed within thirty days, or any extension of
that date after receiving a notice of uncorrected deficiencies to commence corrective action, or if the department finds
that reclamation has not been completed properly in conformance with the reclamation plan within two years, or longer if
authorized by the department, after termination of the mining (exploring) on any segment of the permit area, the operator
shall show cause why it has not complied, and upon just cause given, an extension of time to comply must be granted.
If just cause is not demonstrated, the department shall initiate forfeiture proceedings against the bonds or other security
filed by the operator (explorer) under Section 48-20-170. The failure constitutes grounds for suspension or revocation of
the operator’s permit (explorer’s certificate) as provided in Section 48-20-160.
