This practice describes minimum geospatial data required to locate and describe lands unsuitable for mining petitions (LUMP) and designated areas as a result of the petition. Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D18 on Soil and Rock, this practice was withdrawn in January 2013 and replaced by Practice D7780 for Geospatial Data for Representing Coal Mining Features.
1.1 This practice describes minimum geospatial data required to locate and describe lands unsuitable for mining petitions (LUMP) and designated areas as a result of the petition.
1.1.1 This practice addresses petition areas and any resulting designated areas geospatial boundary data as detailed in the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 (SMCRA). This geospatial data shall be obtained from each state, tribal, or federal coal mining Regulatory Authority (RA), or combinations thereof, authorized under SMCRA to regulate coal mining operations (CMOs). Each RA shall be the authoritative data source (ADS) for this coal mining geospatial data.
1.1.2 As used in this practice, a LUMP area was petitioned to be designated as unsuitable for CMOs. The RA is responsible for keeping a record of these areas as set forth in Title V Section 522 of the SMCRA and within the OSM regulations (30 CFR Part 761).
1.1.3 This practice is one of several that have been approved or are in development related to SMCRA approved coal mining operations. Also under development is a terminology standard. Initial development of these standards is being done on an individual basis; however, they may be consolidated to reduce repetition of information between them.
1.2 This practice applies to pre-SMCRA and post-SMCRA petition areas considered by the RA.
1.3 This practice offers a set of instructions for performing one or more specific operations. This document cannot replace education or experience and should be used in conjunction with professional judgment. Not all aspects of this practice may be applicable in all circumstances. This ASTM standard is not intended to represent or replace the standard of care by which the adequacy of a given professional service must be judged, nor should this document be applied without consideration of a project’s many unique aspects. The word “Standard” in the title of this document means only that the document has been approved through the ASTM consensus process.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
