Electronic Submission of eDMRs for Mining

eMine Operator

e-permitting Application

Mining currently has the following applications 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) [Required electronic submittal beginning 2019.]

To apply for these authorizations electronically, the operator or their representative must name a person as an administrator. To do this, complete the registration and security agreement (linked below) designating an ‘EFA’ – a person who can administer user access and make submissions for the listed Mine Operator. The EFA also will have an account with the DEP Green Port. The ORIGINAL signed EFA form must be sent to the Bureau of Mining Programs (via postal mail only). Once approved, the EFA will be notified via email. The EFA can then designate other Users for the stated operator for various roles in the e-permitting process.

Permit applications are completed through the Green Port. Questions can be directed via email to RA-epminingpermits@pa.gov. Online applications are encouraged and are typically processed in a timelier manner than paper submissions.
