Document Description
Approval of Conditional Use/ Surface Mining Permits and a 15-year Reclamation Plan for the Baker Creek Quarry. Approval will allow for the commercial production of run-of-mine hardrock aggregate products from an existing quarry where production has been limited to the support of Barnum Timber Company's timber and land management operations, i.e. the repair and maintenance of roads. The quarry has been operated since the 1950s. The present quarry covers approximately 3 acres; the mineral reserve covers 11 acres. The volume of available material is estimated at an excess of one million cubic yards. At an anticipated annual rate of extraction of 50,000 cubic yards, the quarry would have a life expectancy of 20 years. Annual production will vary with market conditions and the need for on-site road maintenance. Baker Creek is a perennial stream north of the project site and is within an approximate 50 feet of the operating area. There will be no excavation below the adjacent stream elevation. Quarry operations involve excavation by ripping and pushing broken rock over the hillside to the stockpile area where run-of-mine rock will be loaded into highway transports. There will be limited drilling and blasting and no processing of the excavated material.
