Data Quality

The information comes from expert reports, mining maps and other available documentation. The basic part of the Abandoned Mine Lands Database was developed in 1985-1988. Data were then entered into the database, corrected and supplemented several times with references to the Underground Mines Database. The entries are updated continuously.
