Mining & Reclamation in Colorado

Colorado Oil and Gas Law Attorney

Mine reclamation involves rehabilitating mined land and creating useful landscapes. Reclamation can be necessary after property is mined for oil or gas, as the drilling process can have a significant impact on the surrounding ecosystem. Landowners who lease oil or gas rights to mining companies will sometimes have stipulations in their contracts that dictate how their land is to be rehabilitated after mining efforts have ceased. If you require legal help in a matter involving the reclamation of land that has been mined for oil or gas, contact a Colorado oil and gas law attorney today.

Cantafio & Song PLLC is committed to providing help to landowners in all aspects of the mineral leasing process, including land reclamation. Our attorneys represent landowners who are seeking to enforce any reclamation terms that exist in their leasing contracts.

Help for Mining & Reclamation Cases in Colorado

If a landowner and a mining company have signed a leasing contract that mandates reclamation activities for the landowner's property, then the company is duty-bound to engage in those activities. If, at the termination of mining efforts, the company fails to fulfill their obligations, they can be held legally accountable for any loss of property value that occurs as a result of their inaction. If you intend to take legal action against a company that failed to perform reclamation duties on your land, it is recommended that you consult with an attorney who can improve the likelihood of a favorable outcome to your case.

Contact a Colorado oil and gas lawyer right away if you require help in resolving an issue related to the reclamation of your mined land.
