MMD Online: Web Applications
The Mine Registrations and Permits search application provides data for all registered mines (excluding abandoned mines) in New Mexico and is searchable by a number of parameter combinations. Enter desired search parameters and export the results (up to 30 fields of information) to an Excel spreadsheet, or to KML (Keyhole Markup Language) to display geographic data in an Earth browser. By statute (69-26-20 NMSA), some information is not made public. To export state-wide mine registrations (excluding abandoned mines): click on Reset, then Search, then Export All to Excel or to KML.
The mining operation information in the Mine Registrations portion of the search engine was collected under the authority of NMSA, 1978, Chapter 69, by the Mine Registration, Reporting and Safeguarding (MRRS) Program of the Mining and Minerals Division (MMD). It is the sole responsibility of mine operators to register any mine, mill, smelter, pit, quarry or other mining facility with MRRS prior to the start of operations; to notify MRRS of operational changes; and to accurately and periodically report data as required under the statute and attendant regulation. Information in this portion of MMD’s website is based on data reported to MMD by mine operators. While MMD reviews the reported data for completeness and accuracy, anyone using this information should be aware that it does not originate with MMD.
