The Division of Reclamation offers two different views of Indiana coal mining activity – past and present.

  • Current mining activity shows current coal mining activity only and offers a selection of mine site related information: permit boundaries, mining status, coal production, pre- and post-mining land use and more.
  • Abandoned mine land maps for the Indiana Coal Mine Information System (CMIS) is a product of partnership between the Indiana Geological Survey and the Division of Reclamation. All known historical mining activity, as well as affected areas from current operations is outlined. This site provides a different collection of mine data and viewing options. Either is useful and flexible to meet your particular interests. The Coal Mine Information System hosted by the Indiana Geological Survey in Bloomington. Instructions for using the system are on the left side of the page in a document called "Getting Started."
