Hard Rock Bonding

Lease bonding is required for all producing hard rock leases. Lease bond must be posted after lease approval and before development of the lease. Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality also requires reclamation bonding for the mining permit. The WDEQ reclamation bond requirements are separate from OSLI lease bonding requirements. Lease bonding may be accepted as Surety, Letter of Credit, Certificate of Deposit, or Certified Corporate Check. Blanket surety bonds may be accepted in the amount of $100,000 to cover liabilities of multiple leases.
