(1) The preparatory work site and proposed facilities shall be described in narrative form and located on the mine site permit map. The narrative shall categorize each disturbance as to specific purpose, disturbance method, acreage, and depths and volumes of cuts or fills. The operator shall be obligated to conduct the method of construction and reclamation in accordance with the provisions of the plans unless proposed changes requested by the company are authorized in writing by the department. The department may make changes in the construction and reclamation plans when problem situations are revealed by field inspection or as other relevant information is obtained. Upon request, all parties shall have an opportunity for a hearing, in accord with 82-4-130, MCA, prior to any modification of a permit or reclamation plan. As additional information and/or maps are obtained by the company for the intended area of operations such information shall be promptly submitted to the department.
