Document Description
The applicant has applied for an amendment to Reclamation Plan 96-12. The project proposes expanding mining operations at Keeler Pit MS #300 for continued maintenance of dirt shoulders in Inyo County. Approximately 300,000 cubic yards of material will be extracted from the site over a 30 to 50-year span in an 8.1 acre-expansion area. Mining will occur in 4 phases, entailing the creation of a dirt access road and a material extraction pit east and southeast of the existing pit. Four to six inches of topsoil will be relocated to soil berms on the north, south and east edges of the pit. The pit will be graded to ensure storm water containment (final slope configuration 3:1 or flatter). All equipment storage and operations will occur within the limits of the existing (lower) pit. A retention basin, to manage and contain all storm water, will be constructed in the lower pit.
