Its purpose is to ensure sustainable and economically efficient use of the earth's crust and to reduce environmental nuisances arising thereby to the greatest extent possible. More specifically, the Act regulates geological investigation; geological exploration of mineral resources; extraction of mineral resources; the rights of the owner of an immovable upon use of mineral resources within the boundaries of the owner's immovable; reclamation of the explored land and land disturbed by extraction; use of the earth's crust not related to the extraction of mineral resources, except in the part regulated by other Acts; protection of the earth's crust; prevention of environmental threats and reduction of environmental risks involved in the use of the earth's crust, unless regulated by other Acts; organisation of state supervision over compliance with the requirements provided for in this Act; liability for violation of the requirements provided for in this Act. Removal of mineral resources or rock, sediments, liquid or gas not registered as mineral resources from the natural state is not deemed to be a significant environmental nuisance within the scope of application of this Act.
