What is the size of the surface footprint?

Black Butte will have a very small footprint with a total area of mine operations close to 270 acres, with in this fenced in area, the cemented tailings facility is 80 acres, the process water pond is 17 acres, and the plant site itself is 14 acres. All areas will be reclaimed at the end of mining. The company secures a bond before construction starts ensuring that sufficient funds are available to properly reclaim all site disturbances.
