We see these challenges as opportunities to demonstrate industry leadership by further improving our health and safety performance, minimizing our impact on the environment, and fostering meaningful relationships with communities. There is a fundamental expectation within Graymont that all employees share in the responsibility for developing and maintaining a sustainable organization.
We have committed to ensuring public access to non-active areas for outdoor recreation including hunting, fishing, hiking, motorized and non-motorized recreation trail.
Graymont will reserve up to 1,000 acres of the surface above the underground mine for facilities required for mining, a future limestone processing operation and buffer zones. We conduct underground mining with extreme care to protect and avoid any disruption of the surface and water flow.
