Document Description
The proposed Soledad Mountain Project is an open pit mining operation encompassing approximately 2,500 acres, of which approximately 905 acres will be mined, designed to recover precious metals from excavated ore via conventional heap leach processing methods. Project implementation will require the modification of two Conditional Use Permits (CUP 41, Map 213 and CUP 22, Map 214) previously approved by the Kern County Board of Supervisors in 1997 and the approval of a new Conditional Use Permit (CUP 27, Map 196) to amend an existing surface mining and reclamation plan in accordance with the provisions of the Surface Mining and Reclamation Act (SMARA) of 1975. Because of the proposed mine's design, the applicant will also be required to obtain approval of a Nonsummary Vacation for a portion of New Eagle Road in accordance with the California Streets and Highway Code.
