Applicant:

David Gmeiner

5485 St Rte 12E - 5 Mi E of Cape Vincent - 1700' N of Fox Creek Rd
Cape Vincent, NY 13618

Application ID:

6-2228-00565/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation

Project is Located:

Jefferson County


Project Description:

The applicant proposes to modify the mining permit to expand operations of the existing limestone quarry. The modification involves adding 12.9 acres of land to the currently permitted 17.1 acres life of mine area. The project site is the applicant's property, located approximately 5 miles southeast of Cape Vincent and 2,000 feet east of NYS Route 12E. The site access road intersects NYS Route 12E approximately 1,700 feet north of Fox Creek Road in the Town of Cape Vincent, Jefferson County. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of consolidated limestone. Mining is proposed for below the local water table. The quarry will be worked using standard drilling and blasting techniques. Existing overburden will be removed and stored in a perimeter berm for future reclamation use. Processing of materials will consist of crushing and dry screening. Aggregate washing is not proposed. Final reclamation will restore the site to a +/- 30 acre open water surface within uniformly graded and re-vegetated open land. Up-land reclamation will include the replacement of stockpiled overburden/topsoil, and re-seeding with an approved USDA SCS seed mixture. The reviewed expansion life-of-mine area is 12.9 (LOM) acres.
