KEYSTONE MINE RECLAIMED

Comstock Mining Inc. is giving the old Keystone Mine back to Mother Nature.  It is the first major reclamation project for Comstock Mining, Inc.  The Keystone surface mine has been completely filled in, contoured, and then covered with growth media.

 

Pictured is the site being landscaped with rock to imitate outcroppings.

 

In October, it will be hydro seeded with native plants and shrubs just in time for the winter moisture.

The Keystone project is an example of Comstock’s concurrent mining and reclamation procedure where it mines one area while reclaiming another.
