Because of this, both national and international laws are in place to protect miners and the environment while still allowing the products of mining to play a role in our everyday lives.

The Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act (SMCRA) of created a framework for a national regulatory program to prevent significant environmental damage from surface coal mining. DEP's Office of Active and Abandoned Mining Operations (AAMO) oversees nearly Commonwealth employees located within four Bureaus. The office is responsible for the policies and implantation of programs that regulate or minimize the impact from the extraction of coal and noncoal (industrial minerals). The four programs have distinctive roles.
