Background Discussion

In accordance with Ordinance 04-39, a phosphate mine reclamation bond covers one hundred ten percent (110%) of the reclamation cost for each acre of land to be disturbed during the coming year and all land previously disturbed by mining activities, and includes the costs of the wetland mitigation and the tear-down and removal of mine infrastructure.

The Altman Tract, Parcel No. 4 Reclamation Bond Number 08941617 has been decreased to $7,346,633.00 (existing bond amount is $7,526,442.00).  This bond rider adjustment covers reclamation and wetland mitigation requirements, including the fixed wetland bonding amount of $2,000,000.00 as well as for each acre of land to be disturbed during the 2017/2018 annual report year.

The bond rider amendment was certified by a registered third party engineer and is reviewed and approved by the Director of the Parks & Natural Resources Department or his designated staff.
