Returning spent shale back to where it was mined will minimize land disturbance and allow for reclaiming the mine to the natural topography. Ongoing reclamation will minimize the active mining area at any point in time. Enefit will also employ the best available air emission controls and monitoring to meet air quality regulations.
Extensive background studies are underway that will characterize the environmental conditions at the site and allow us to design the most sensitive project possible. This includes a dedicated meteorological and air quality monitoring station which will operate for at least 1.5 years continually collecting data on air quality. We also have an MOU with USU to provide all this data to them to assist regional assessments.
