Mineral Land Regulation & Reclamation - Awards

Mined Land Reclamation Awards

We need your assistance!


Each year, the MLRR Program recognizes outstanding reclamation in several categories. We are continually seeking nominations for our Annual Reclamation Awards, and we encourage operators to nominate themselves, even though some are hesitant to do so.

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

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.
