We’re committed to environmental compliance and improvement in all aspects of the mining operation. With state-of-the-art emissions controls — such as air monitors and monitor water wells — we continuously collect data and test samples to make sure the mine is not negatively impacting the environment. The environmental team at the mine works with federal and state agencies to minimize potential impacts to the environment and surrounding community.
Additionally, we are active in reclamation practices. We strive to reclaim lands in a timely manner as mining progression allows. The reclamation process rebuilds the mining area to a useful and productive state. This means creating a diverse vegetation community that is able to sustain drainage without erosion and to provide a quality habitat for wildlife.
