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.  On an annual basis, the accuracy of the bond areas and the costs of reclamation are certified by a registered third party engineer and are reviewed and approved by the Director of the Parks and Natural Resources Department, or his designated staff.

The Altman Tract, Parcel No. 4 Reclamation Bond Number 08941617 has been increased to $7,096,412.00 (existing bond amount of $6,375,377.00).  The Parks and Natural Resources Department has reviewed the bond amount and has determined that it meets the requirements of the Manatee County Phosphate Mining Code (Ordinance 04-39) and Operating Permit R-14-004.
