Gravel Pit Expansion

San Pedro Rock, which mined for quite a few years in San Lazarus Gulch, north of the fire station, is applying to BLM for a new 20-year permit to resume mining on new ground. This would greatly increase their legal mining area. They have been closed for a year or two because they ran out of good material. Approval of this plan would result in resumed mining and trucking in our neighborhood.

At present, BLM is considering their proposal and our comments.

SPNA does NOT support this 20-year expansion.
