Where is Coal?

The Division of Reclamation offers two different views of Indiana coal mining activity – past and present.

  • Current mining activity shows current coal mining activity only and offers a selection of mine site related information: permit boundaries, mining status, coal production, pre- and post-mining land use and more.
  • Abandoned mine land maps for the Indiana Coal Mine Information System (CMIS). All known historical mining activity, as well as affected areas from current operations is outlined. This site provides a different collection of mine data and viewing options. Either is useful and flexible to meet your particular interests.
