Document Description
The proposed project is a Reclamation Plan Amendment and Coastal Development Permit to extend existing mining operations at the Guadalupe sand mine 100 years to March 1, 2115. The extended end date serves to reflect the average annual production rate and Applicant/Operator estimates for the rate of natural sand replenishment at the site. Other proposed changes to the Reclamation Plan include implementing active revegetation in certain areas only if natural revegetation is not evident within the first three years following cessation of mining.
