Document Description
Renewal of a 15-year permit term for a previously approved rock quarry surface mining operation which has been permitted and operating for the past 25 years. The project includes renewal of a CUP, Surface Mining Permit, Reclamation Plan, and review of financial assurance cost estimates for a surface mining operation involving an open pit upland rock quarry with a proposed total extraction of 90,000 cubic yards over a 15-year period from an open pit mine. The method of surface rock removal will involve the use of explosives and an air track drill spaced on an 8' - 10' grid pattern back from the rock face. Other equipment to be used include a "cat 966 loader", a "cat D-7 crawler", and a grizzly dry screen sorter. Rock products will be hauled by end-dump trucks. Truck trips are estimated at an average daily traffic of five.
