Document Description
Jaxon Enterprises, Inc. proposes to expand their existing aggregate mine in southeast Merced County from permitted reserves of 2.5 million tons (authorized for extraction under Conditional Use Permit [CUP] No. 3603) to 6 million tons of permitted material. The project expansion includes the following: (1) expanding an existing aggregate surface mine laterally from 90 +/- acres to approximately 357 +/- acres; (2) increasing the depth of the permitted mine by ten feet (to increase from 18 feet below ground surface to 28 feet below ground surface) at the southwest end of the site transitioning to 15 feet deeper (to increase from 18 feet below ground surface to 33 feet below ground surface) at the northeast end of the site, and mining the expanded laterial area to the new depth; (3) increasing the annual material to be mined from the current baseline of 260,000 tons/year mined, and 240,000 tons/year marketed to a maximum of 550,000 tons/year mined and 500,000 tons/year marketed; (4) modifying the reclamation phasing from five acre increments to 20 acre increments; (5) establishing an updated reclamation plan with dry land cattle grazing as the end use; and (6) clarifying the permit to recognize the Applicant's ability to operate the plant at night to serve public agency projects which require nighttime deliveries. The property is designated as Agricultural land use in the Merced County General Plan, and is zoned A-2 (Exclusive Agricultural).
