Document Description
M&T Chico Ranch is proposing a new mining operation that would remove an existing stockpile of alluvial aggregates from the project site. The stockpile was generated during wet and dry dredging operations conducted in 2001 and 2007 on the Sacramento River. Aggregate material will continue to be placed onsite as a result of future planned dredging operations (analyzed separately). A total of up to 600,000 tons of aggregate are anticipated to be removed over the life of the proposed project. Annual mining production would range from 20,000 to 50,000 tons, with a maximum of 100,000 tons per year, over a period of approximately 20 years. Following the completion of mining operations, the project site would be revegetated with native grassland species and reclaimed to open space uses.
