Document Description
Modification of a recent 15 year renewal of a previously approved CUP for an upland rock quarry surface mining operation. The modification seeks to expand the area of mining operation by adding an additional 39 acres to be mined (in addition to the existing 25 acre mining area). This includes areas that will be mined for rock and areas that will be used for topsoil and overburden storage. The Reclamation Plan is revised to show that the total area to be reclaimed is 64 acres. Rock of various sizes will continue to be mined, with an estimated volume of 4 million tons of hard rock over the life of the mine. Mining and overburden fill have already occurred on approximately 25 acres of the parcel.
