The dispute over the only coastal sand mine in the US, a Cemex mine in Marina, Caifornia, continues.

The California Coastal Commission made the first move toward shutting the Cemex Sand Mine in Marina in March when it issued a Notice of Intent to Commence a Cease and Desist Order.

Several deadlines have since passed but the Coastal Commission says the two groups are talking.

“Extending the SOD [Statement of Defense] deadlines is very typical in our continued approach to try to resolve violations without the need for protracted and expensive litigation,” wrote Noaki Schwartz, public information officer for the California Coastal Commission.

“If we cannot resolve outstanding issues via this consent order process we do move forward with a regular order to compel compliance with the Coastal Act,”

Separately from the Coastal Commission’s action, the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary is exploring if it has any jurisdictional authority over the mine.
