Permit(s) Applied for:
Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located:
The proposed project is to develop and operate a 8.9 acre surface sand and gravel mine within 82.5 acre parcels north of Adams. The mine will operate as a traditional surface extraction of the Plainfield series of sandy soil which is the predominate soil type on the site. Mining is proposed for above the local water table. Approximately 30,000 cubic yards-per-year of sand and gravel will be removed over the estimated 15 year operational life of the mine. Material will be stockpiled as unprocessed "run-of-bank', or processed with portable screens and crushers. Maximum processing rates for the screen and crushing operations will not exceed 150 tons-per-hour (TPS). Final reclamation will restore the site to a +/- 8.9 acre uniformly graded and re-vegetated open land. The reviewed life-of-mine area is 8.9 acres.
