Standardized Reclamation Cost Estimator

Standardized Reclamation Cost Estimator

This website hosts the Standardized Reclamation Cost Estimator (SRCE) software that was originally developed as a cooperative effort between the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection, Bureau of Mining Regulation and Reclamation (NDEP), the U.S. Department of Interior, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Nevada Mining Association (NvMA). The focus of that effort was to facilitate accuracy, completeness and consistency in the calculation of costs for mine site closure and reclamation.

The project was implemented largely on a voluntary basis with initial funding provided the NvMA. The SRCE software continues to be developed and supported on a voluntary basis, and the model is publicly available free of charge. For more information on the project please see the About SRCE page.

To help you make better use of the model and help us continue to improve it, we’ve provided a number of resources here to help you report and resolve problems, suggest improvements and learn about the model and the Nevada Standardized Unit Cost project.
