This database contains key information on areas where underground mining or mineral exploration was undertaken in the past. It provides warnings about areas where subsidence or other hazards may occur due to the presence of underground spaces.
The information is used primarily for land use planning and land development assessments, for safeguarding areas affected by impacts of mine workings, and for processing of detailed information about the areas.

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.
