The proposed Use Permit and Reclamation Plan Amendment includes expansion of approximately 78.6 acres with an associated additional volume of 5,000,000 tons of material, extension of the life of the mine from 2030 to 2050, and increase in the maximum volume extracted per year from 100,000 tons to 200,000 tons. These amendments will allow the facility to continue to provide local construction materials in Lassen County.
