Document Description
The proposal is for a Conditional Use Permit to allow for a surface mining operation and development of a reclamation plan in accordance with the Surface Mining and Reclamation Act (SMARA) of 1975. As proposed, the operation will disturb 17.23 acres of a 281 acre site consisting of five parcels, a portion of which has been disturbed under a previously approved surface mining and reclamation plan (CUP 1, Map 113; CA Mine ID #91-15-0011). The site is zoned A-1 MH and designated 1.1 (State or Federal Land), 8.4/2.4 (Mineral and Petroleum, Minimum 5 Acre Parcel Size/ Steep Slope Overlay) and 8.5/2.5 (Resource Management, Minimum 20 Acre Parcel Size/Flood Hazard Overlay) by the Kern County General Plan. The applicant proposes to employ open pit mining techniques to mine seismotite, pumicite, calcium bentonite clay and limestone aggregate.
