Coal Regulation Information


Drilling for coal exploration or evaluation requires a permit and is regulated under Chapters 38-12.1 and 43-02-01 of the North Dakota Century and Administrative Codes, respectively. A report of findings must be filed with the State Geologist. Collectively, these reports comprise a database useful to private and government coal researchers and provide information necessary for geologic correlations and economic forecasting.
