Accept Surety Bond No. KA2977 Rider in the increased amount of $26,319,479.00 with Mosaic Fertilizer, LLC.
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 Parks and Natural Resources Department has reviewed the increased reclamation bond amount for the Four Corners Mine. This Bond is increased from $24,130,783.00 to $26,319,479.00 during the 2016/2017 Annual Report period. It has been determined that the increased amount meets the requirements of the Manatee County Phosphate Mining Code (Ordinance 04-39) and Operating Permit R-16-001.
