Campaign cracks down on illegal prospecting

Campaign cracks down on illegal prospecting The U.S. Geological Survey is cracking down on illegal harvesting of rare rocks. The agency has proposed increasing penalties in certain circumstances for illegal prospecting, such as large-scale logging and mining. A total of 12 species are listed as “high threat” in the agency’s national priority list, including the Pa샌즈 카지노cific coral species, black sandstone, yellow peridot, sandstone and cephalopod. The new regulations will help reduce the number of illegal prospectors, said Kevin Czerny, senior policy manager at the U.S. Geological Survey’s division in Washington, D.C. “We’re very concerned that prospectors who are involved in very large-scale illegal activities of logging or mining will be able to get through our enforcement mechanisms faster than they normally would.” In general, the regulations will target people who are harvesting resources for sale online — for example, in an online classified ad or online store — and those who are selling them “for resale or trading.” In those cases, if they are convicted of illegal prospecting, they face fines of up to $10,000 and five years in jail. “People can be convicted of unlawful prospecting regardless of whether they are harvesting a specific species or a specific resource,” Czerny said. The new rules will “continue to속초출장샵 hold companies to account when they engage in illegal, unethical conduct, and we will continue to keep our eye on this issue and work with other U.S. law enforcement and public health officials to ensure the law is being enforced against people who are engaging in these activities and that they are caught early,” he said. The regulation doesn’t apply to people who are not engaged in illegal prospecting, and the government said its review of the proposed policy could take up to four years. The proposed regulations will also include more stringent penalties for activities such as timber harvesting, he said. Timber harvesting will receive an “enforcing” status based on the severity of the incident, while other resources will be placed on a “red flag” status based on their potential impact on fish, wildlife and recreational activities. The new rules will be effective April 1 and last for up to six years. The rules are subject to a review process, but Czerny said no decisions have yet been made on how to implement the regulations.
