Billions of dollars in hardrock minerals, such as gold, have been extracted from fed. land now managed by the Bur. of Land Mgmt. (BLM).

The Gen. Mining Act of 1872 helped open the West by allowing individuals to obtain exclusive rights to mine gold, silver, and other hardrock minerals from fed. lands without having to pay a fed. royalty. However, western states charge royalties. For years, some mining operators did not reclaim land used in their mining operations, creating environ. and physical safety hazards. In 2001 the fed. gov¿t. began requiring operators to provide financial assurances to cover reclamation costs before they began exploration or mining operations. This testimony focuses on the: (1) royalties states charge

The liberalization of the telecommunications markets in Sub-Saharan Africa led to increased competition on the provision and pricing of communication services. But, due to the lack of appropriate regulatory tools, newly established regulators are poorly equipped to arbitrate increasing interconnection disputes between competing operators.This guidebook and its associated CD-ROM, including the cost model, were prepared to provide Sub-Saharan Africa regulators and operators with a sound regulatory tool allowing the determination of accurate interconnection costs, thus facilitating the settlement

The number of oil and gas wells on leased fed. land has increased dramatically. To help manage the environmental impacts of these wells, BLM requires oil and gas operators to reclaim disturbed land. BLM requires them to provide a bond before beginning drilling operations. BLM refers to oil and gas wells and leased land that will require reclamation as potential liabilities because BLM may have to pay for reclamation if the operators fail to do so. This report determined: (1) BLM's policies for managing potential federal oil and gas well liability; (2) the extent to which BLM has implemented th

Many developing countries have experienced significant developments in their telecommunications network. Countries in Africa are no exception to this. The paper examines what factor facilitates most network expansion using micro data from 45 fixed-line and mobile telephone operators in 18 African countries. In theory the telecommunications sector has two sector-specific characteristics: network externalities and discriminatory pricing. It finds that many telephone operators in the region use peak and off-peak prices and termination-based price discrimination, but are less likely to rely on str
