Document Description
The Applicant currently operates a rock and gravel surface mining operation on 28 acres, as permitted by PMR 01-001, PMR 09-002, and PSP 01-055 (ZA). The permit amendments requested by PMR 14-002 will: - Increase annual production from a maximum of 500,000, to a maximum 950,000 tons per year. - Increase truck hauling from a maximum of 200, to a maximum 350 round trips per day. - Result in no increase in the maximum depth of the mine as expansion will occur laterally. - Allow consistency between PMR 01-001 and PMR 09-002, and PSP 01-055 (ZA). There will be no lateral expansion of the existing approved mine footprint. The estimated total production is still 15,000,000 tons of rock material during the estimated 50-years of operation, and the disturbed Project site area is still proposed to be reclaimed for grazing and agriculture uses.
