1028-0060 Mine, Development, and Mineral Exploration Supplement (USGS Form 9-4000-A)

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is revising the number of responses (i.e., canvassees) and associated burden hours as published on the 60-day Federal Register Notice (FRN) for this annual canvass.  The number of responses and associated burden hours have been overstated in renewals of this information collection.  Estimated time per response remains unchanged at 45 minutes.

Number of responses / associated burden hours on 60-day FRN:  828 / 621
Revised number of responses / associated burden hours:  324 / 243

Explanation:  The USGS Automated Minerals Information System (AMIS) database stores data for this canvass as reported by operations.  The source of the AMIS data may be directly from operations canvassed for this form (USGS Form 9-4000-A) or, more commonly, from data already reported on canvass forms associated with other USGS information collections.  Responses and burden hours associated with AMIS data reported from the latter source should not have been included for this information collection because they were already included as part of their respective information collections.
