Weintraub attorney David A. Diepenbrock recently helped persuade the State Mining and Geology Board to rescind one of the largest fines it had ever imposed under the Surface Mining and Reclamation Act of 1975 (“SMARA”), totaling over $11,000,000. The Board purported to impose the fine for, among things, mining without an approved reclamation plan or a reclamation bond.
