Yes… Under the Surface Mining and Reclamation Act of 1975 (“SMARA”, Public Resources Code, Section 2710 et seq.), counties and incorporated cities were given the responsibility (lead agency status) to issue a Mining Conditional Use Permit (CUP) and/or approve a Reclamation Plan for surface mining operations within their jurisdictions. San Bernardino County’s policies and ordinances regarding mining can be found in the 2007 General Plan and Division 8, Chapter 88.03 of the Development Code.
