Van Stone Cleanup Options: Public input invited on draft Feasibility Study (Number of pages: 4) (Publication Size: 1973KB)
|Description||Ecology seeks your input on the draft Feasibility Study (FS) for the Van Stone Mine site. The FS summarizes past investigations of mining-related contamination and emergency cleanup actions already completed. Then cleanup options are evaluated.
The Van Stone Mine operated on and off from 1938 to 1993 as an underground mine and then as an open-pit lead and zinc mine with a flotation mill. Specific contaminants vary by area, but in general, soil is contaminated with antimony, arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury, and zinc. Surface water discharging into Onion Creek tributaries from tailings piles also have levels of contaminants requiring cleanup.
