Mitsubishi Cement Corporation South Quarry Project
NOP - Notice of Preparation
Present Land Use
Present: Open Space (San Bernardino Nat'l Forest) / General Plan: Resource Conservation (RC) (non-County jurisdictional
Mitsubishi Cement Corporation (MCC) is requesting approval of a Plan of Operations from the U.S. Forest Service, and a Reclamation Plan from the County of San Bernardino. The requested plan approvals would add a 153.6-acre South Quarry operation to an approximately 500-acre existing surface mining complex. The proposed South Quarry will consist of a 128-acre high-grade limestone quarry, a 2.7-acre landscape berm, a 22.2-acre haul road 1.8 miles in length, and 0.7 acres for a temporary construction road. MCC is requesting a 120-year operations plan to mine at an average production rate of 1.3 million tons per year of ore (156 million tons total) and 150,000 tons per year of waste rock. No modifications are proposed for the adjacent Cushenbury Cement Plant. Concurrent reclamation will be conducted throughout the life of the quarry and, at the conclusion of excavations, five years of active reclamation and revegetation will be implemented followed by revegetation monitoring and remediation until revegetation goals are achieved.
