The Minerals Program is proposing revisions to the Construction Materials and Hard Rock rules. The proposed Hard Rock rule amendments include the deletion of the custom milling definition
and exemption, clarifying and amending certain portions of the existing rules
including the size of the required posted sign, a completion date for Notices
of Intent to Conduct Prospecting Activities, and general editorial clean up. The proposed Construction Materials rule amendments address the new 111b permit and clarify and amend
certain portions of existing rules, including the size of the required posted
