Expiration date: 4/16/2014
The applicant, Christy Minerals, LLC, is seeking authorization to mine a fireclay deposit using open pit mining method in jurisdictional waters of the United States. For the proposed construction, approximately 2,265 linear feet of two unnamed, intermittent streams that flow into Elkhorn creek will be impacted. Due to the depth of the fire clay reserves and the slopes required for safe mining practices, the majority of the reserves would be inaccessible due to the location of the streams. The applicant is proposing to relocate the streams for the duration of the mining operation. The project is planned to be completed in stages beginning in August 2014 and completed by August 2019. The project is located at the Christy Minerals, LLC, Clare Mine site, New Florence, MO. The project area is in Section 12, Township 48 North, Range 5 West, Montgomery County.Written comments must be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mailing them to the address shown in the signature block below.
