Mined Land Reclamation Awards

We need your assistance!
Each year, the MLRR Program recognizes outstanding reclamation in several categories. Through the awards program, the positive aspects of the mining industry are recognized.

Past category winners have included:

  • Outstanding Reclamation – (Large, Small, Government Agency, Exploration)
  • Outstanding Voluntary Reclamation
  • Outstanding Operator (Large, Small)
  • Good Neighbor
  • Oregon Plan Award
  • Reclamation Planning

We are continually seeking nominations for our Annual Reclamation Awards, and we encourage operators to nominate themselves, although we realize that some are hesitant to do so. With your help, we would like to identify those operators who excel at the day-to-day operations of a site, perform high-quality reclamation, involve their companies in community service, or work to meet the goals of the Oregon Plan.

Nominations collected through February 1 are then considered for the previous year’s award (in 2010, we presented the award winners for the 2009 year).

For more details, or to make a nomination, please email or telephone 541-967-2039.
