Concurrent Reclamation

Lisbon Valley Mining Company is committed to sound environmental practices and concurrent reclamation.  Reclamation activities include re-grading disturbed areas to the original landscape and surface texture as well as re-seeding to foster re-vegetation and slope stability.   Curvilinear and roughened grading is conducted to blend in with the natural topography.  Early reclamation allows the Company to monitor progress and ultimately expedites the return of the land to other sustainable use.
