St Lawrence County

Applicant:

Philip A Royce

Facility:

Royce Topsoil Mine
503 Howardville Rd
Canton, NY 13617

Application ID:

6-4070-00064/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation

Project is Located:

St Lawrence County


Project Description:

The applicant proposes to develop and operate a 6.0 acre topsoil mine within a 17.3 acre parcel west of Pierrepont. The project site is the applicant's property and is currently occupied by the applicant's son, Mr. Philip R. Royce. The proposed mine site is located two miles west of Pierrepont on Howardville Road, approximately 500 feet north of its intersection with County Route 29, in the Town of Pierrepont. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of the Berkshire Loam of the Berkshire series soils which is the predominate soil type on the site. Mining is proposed for above the local water table. The upper 7-9 inches of the topsoil will be removed by mechanical means utilizing a dozer, backhoe or similar equipment. A small screening system will be used to prepare the topsoil for shipment. Maximum processing rates for the screen operations will not exceed 150 tons-per-hour (TPH). Mining is proposed to remove approximately 1,000 tons-per-year of topsoil over the estimated 10 year operational life of the mine. Final reclamation will restore the site to a +/-6.0 acre vegetated grassy open land for grazing and pasturing livestock. The reviewed Life-Of-Mine (LOM) area is 6.0 acres.
