Mine Inspection Fee

All permit holders pay a mine inspection fee to cover the cost of health and safety inspections.  You must file and pay the mine inspection fee for each mine, pit or quarry you hold a permit for until reclamation is completed and your reclamation security has been returned to you.

The amount you file and pay depends on the type of mine:
