There is a new first of its kind, mining ordinance that was passed by Sante Fe County recently. “The room of the county building where the Santa Fe County Board of Commissioners holds its meetings was packed Tuesday evening in anticipation of the last item on the public hearing agenda: an ordinance amending the Sustainable Land Development Code (SLDC) to include the adoption of regulations for mineral resource exploration, extraction, and processing.
The ordinance, adopted on a unanimous 5-0 vote, completely overhauls antiquated mining laws and creates the first standardized regulatory procedure for evaluating new mining activity on federal lands in the county.”
