No. 27241 MOHL SITE GRAVEL PIT OPERATION SECTIONS 21 & 22, T29N, R21W FLATHEAD COUNTY OPERATOR: KNIFE RIVER 4800 Wilkie Road Missoula, MT 59808 406-532-5225, fax 406-532-5200 Knife River proposes to renew its existing 180.5 acre gravel pit located on US Highway 2 East, 4 miles north of Kalispell. The site contains asphalt, concrete and wash plants as well as an occasional crusher. Mining over the past 70 years has created several large ponds and the facility area has contracted toward the northwest as the ponds advanced, and no increase in acreage or new mining is planned. The mining phase will be completed in the near future and the facility complex will remain as an industrial site after the mining permit is closed. The final reclamation date will now be December 2050. Early mining records are not available, but as much as a total of 2.6 million cubic yards of sand and gravel may be removed from this site. A substantial volume of soil and overburden has been salvaged for reclamation. The site will be reclaimed to wildlife ponds and an industrial site. The site is accessed through a gate at the northwest permit corner directly onto US Highway 2. The pit would be operated from 5 AM to 7 PM Monday through Saturday. Special extended hours would be used to haul products for some projects, especially at night. Mining and hauling include the use of dozers, loaders, scrapers, dredge, haul trucks, fuel trucks, seeders, road watering and other equipment typical of heavy construction. The full application can be seen on the DEQ Opencut Website by going to https://searchopencutpermits.mt.gov/ and entering "Mohl" in the Site Name search field.
