The proposed project includes reclamation of mining sites within the Eagle Bird Mine Claim Group in accordance with the Surface Mining and Reclamation Act and Sierra County regulations. The tasks proposed for mine reclamation include, in general terms, equipment removal and grading, revegetation, and monitoring and maintenance. The overall goal of reclamation is to attain a vegetative cover characteristic of surrounding undisturbed areas and to maintain or improve the value of habitat for wildlife and plants while maintaining surface and groundwater quality. The final land use proposed for the site is natural mixed conifer forest blended with the surrounding disturbed forest land and wildlife habitat.
