Online applications and report submittals are encouraged and are typically processed in a timelier manner than paper submissions. Questions about digital submission of mining permit applications and reports can be directed via email to RA-epminingpermits@pa.gov

eMine

Operators can submit mine operator license renewals online

e-permitting

The following mining applications are available to complete online:

  • Bituminous Surface Mining Permit (in lieu of form 5600-PM-BMP0311)
  • Coal Notice of Intent to Explore (in lieu of form 5600-FM-BMP0092) [Electronic submittal required.]
  • e-permitting Updates

To use the e-permitting platform, the operator or their representative must name a person as an Electronic Filing Administrator (EFA). To designate an EFA – a person who can administer user access and make submissions for the listed Mine Operator – a company officer registers through the DEP Green Port. Once approved, the EFA will be notified via email. The EFA can then designate other Users (such as “Preparer”) for the stated operator for various roles in the e-permitting process.

Please see the following user guides:

Applications not available for submission on the e-permitting platform can be submitted via upload of application documents through the OnBase DEP Upload.
