Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation

Project is Located:

Fort Ann, Washington County


Project Description:

Champlain Stone Ltd. requests a permit modification to continue mining natural building stone from its existing Fort Ann and Whitehall Quarries. The proposed project seeks to encompass several existing and new dimensional stone extraction areas into a single 518.5 acre life of mine area (from the currently permitted 108.6 acres). Architectural stone will be selectively mined to depths of 10 to 30 feet from a 294 acre area. Mining will proceed in eight phases over a period of 100 + years, with concurrent reclamation. About 224 acres of forest land will remain undisturbed. There will be no mining below the local water table. No more than 50 acres of land will be disturbed at any time, including 23.6 acres currently affected by the Fort Ann Quarry and processing facility. The reclamation objective is meadow. The project is located to the west of U.S. Route 4 in Comstock, near the Whitehall / Fort Ann town line.
