District Mining Operations provided an update on the electronic submittal of Hydrologic Monitoring Reports (HMRs). The ePermitting platform was chosen as the mechanism for the submittals. A timeline for the implementation of this project was provided. Testing by external users will be in January 2022 with a few selected operators submitting their 4th Quarter 2021 HMRs electronically. If there are no major issues identified the system will be available for all operators in April 2022 to submit the 1st quarter 2022 HMRs.
