  • California's Surface Mining and Recla· mation Act (SMARA) was passed in 1975 to identify and protect mineral resources in areas of high land use conflict and ensure reclamation of mined lands. U'mier SMARA, aggregate resource availability is quantified and compared to forecasted demand in specific mar· ket regions. Fifteen regions studied thus far cover 51,800 km£ (20,000 sq miles) and contain 45 Gt (50 billion st) of high-quality aggregate resources that have been legally designated as… CONTINUE READING
