Lehigh Hanson seeks to open new mine in Santa Clara County

Lehigh Hanson is applying to open a mine at its site in Santa Clara County hills west of Cupertino in Silicon Valley, according to a report by Cupertino Today.

According to documents made public, the county’s Department of Planning met with Lehigh representatives to discuss the application, which has yet to be formally filed.

Erika Guerra, environmental director for Lehigh, says: “Lehigh has begun the pre-application process with the County. There will be an application followed by a robust environmental review, community outreach process and formal consideration of the application.”

If approved, the application would allow a second quarry pit to continue mining operations as it works to meet the demand for locally-sourced cement.

Additionally, Lehigh wants to begin reclamation at its current quarry site, and carry out reclamation concurrently with mining operations at the new site.
