Madison Mines OU5

VetWSS consolidated mine wastes at the old Catherine Mines property as well as the Skaggs Tailings Subsite and the former Mill Site high above the Little St. Francis River.  The work impacts businesses, farm acreage, and downstream residential properties.  Mine waste was consolidated at each location which included consolidation of transition zones and downstream waste.  


Company personnel staffed an office on the outskirts of Fredericktown that was complete with meeting space, offices, sanitary facilities, drinking water, high speed internet, copy machine, plotter, etc.  The site was convenient for the impacted property owners to easily access company personnel and management and there was a constant dialog with the affected landowners while work was taking place on their property. 


About 415,000 CY of material has been excavated and transported to the two repositories where it was graded and is currently being capped.
