We have taken great care to design a facility that minimizes the use of water, and recycles 80% of the water in our cleaning process.

Air Quality

We are committed to being a good neighbor, and that means monitoring the dust that is a natural component of mining. We use state of the art equipment on our property to monitor airborne particulates. We will use the most advanced dust mitigation equipment to capture any dust that might escape during loading into trucks.


After mining is complete, we will work with local officials to restore the land. This may include a recreational area, a biking path or any way the community considers appropriate as part of land reclamation.

Carbon Footprint and Energy

We work with local officials to reduce our overall emissions in order to have a smaller carbon footprint. The most current and updated technologies will be used in the everyday operations of our plant. Energy-efficient lighting, recycling and other efficiencies will make our new plant a state-of-the-art facility. We will continue to integrate efficiencies with as small a carbon footprint as possible.
