Document Description
Use Permit and Reclamation Plan for surface mining operations consisting of reactivation of the mining previously mined auriferous (gold-bearing) aggregate. Washing (in a portable plant with the recovery of gold) and marketing of sand and gravel are significant parts of the project. There will be quarrying and processing of meta-volcanic rock with quarry advances using conventional methods that include periodic drilling and blasting of the rock. The processing will consist of crushing and screening through portable plants that will be moved toward the quarry rim as it advances. The plants will be fed by a front-end loader and/or excavator. The project may extend into a 20 acre B.L.M. parcel. This mine project area consists of approximately 124+/- acres out of a 232+/- site located on the south side of HWY 16 about 1.5 miles east of the Amador/Sacramento County line.
