The bond program requires working with multiple entities including banks and sister agencies. Penny has worked diligently over the past year to organize the cash bond program in a way that complies with Division rules, meets the criteria of other agencies, and allows operators to understand the requirements.

She also meticulously worked on updating all reclamation contracts regarding Bureau of Land Management (BLM) lands. The BLM made changes to the reclamation contract forms which required Penny to work tirelessly with operators to obtain new signed contracts.

Penny is an integral part of the minerals program team and very deserving of this award.
