    BLM Abandoned Mine Lands Program Feasibility Study for AML Inventory Validation and Physical Safety Closures 1 Executive Summary The Abandoned Mine Lands (AML) Program of the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), operates under multiple authorities. Information on individual abandoned underground mines has been compiled into lists by county and township. Information available on each mine includes, where known: mine name; mine owner, operator, or lessee; type of mine; location by quadrangle and land subdivision; date last surveyed or abandoned; seam/formation identification, elevation, and thickness; and incidental notes.

Production increased to ten million tons by During the early to mid twentieth century, coal's value to Ohio's economy began to decline.
