Document Description
A Conditional Use Permit to allow the expansion of a vested surface mining operation and development of a reclamation plan on two parcels totaling 115.83 acres in accordance with the Surface Mining and Reclamation Act of 1975. Request is to expand a pre-1950, vested mining operation which acres and address all surface disturbance associated with the existing mine and expansion of the mining operation onto the remainder of the vested mining area. Material to be mined would continue to be sand and gravel. The mine would operate generally during daylight hours, 5 days per week, 1 shift per day, year round except during periods of inclement weather. The maximum number of employees on-site at any time would be eight. The project proponent estimates that approximately 60,000 cubic yards of material would be removed per year and that a total of 3,000,000 cubic yards of material, under the current proposal, will have been produced by the mine upon it's anticipated closure in the year 2026. Maximum overall depth of excavation would be increased from an original depth of 90 feet +/- to an approximate depth of 200 feet. No change in final pit slopes are being contemplated. Pit slopes would remain at 2:1 (horizontal: vertical). Water supply for mining and domestic consumption would continue to be via an on-site water well while sewage disposal would be by septic tank. Access would continue to be off Neumarkel Road via Bena Road.
