Mineral mining. Clarifies the responsibilities of licensed operators and independent contractors at mineral mines. The current definition of "operator" includes any independent contractor performing services or construction at a mine. The bill clarifies that many duties imposed by law are the responsibility of the operator to whom the mining license has been issued. For some duties, particularly those related to protecting the health and safety of those working at the mine, the licensed operator and the independent contractor each have responsibilities. Two members are added to the Board of Mineral Mining Examiners: one supervisory and one nonsupervisory employee of an independent contractor. Applicants for a mineral mine license must provide information about any independent contractors who will be working at the mine.
