Document Description
Final Environmental Impact Report, Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program, and Surface Mining Permit and Reclamation Plan, to amend an existing 98 acre surface mining operation to increase annual production from 500,000, to a maximum 950,000 tons per year, as permitted by PMR 01-001, PMR 09-002, and PSP 01-055 (ZA). The requested permit amendments will make PMR 01-001, PMR 09-002, and PSP 01-055 (ZA) consistent, and allow for heavy-duty truck hauling not to exceed 376 round-trips per day, with no lateral expansion of the existing approved mine footprint. The estimated total production is still 40,000,000 tons of rock material over an estimated 50-years of operation. The disturbed area is proposed to be reclaimed for grazing. The mined material will be transported by truck to the Deer Creek Rock Company site, an existing permitted rock plant adjacent to the Project site. Result in no increase in the maximum depth of the mine as expansion will occur laterally.
