One of OHA's projects, the Pine Chee Mitigation Site, is located south of Chesaw at the corner of Chesaw Road and Myers Creek Road. A spring system at the south end of the 29-acre site supports approximately five acres of forested wetland as well as a pond at the north end of the site. The wetland and surrounding acreage is protected under the mine's plan and fenced to prevent degradation by cattle and provides habitat for a wide variety of plants and animals.

Curlew Job Corps Assists with Trail Building

Crown/Kinross moved waste rock onto liners. When mining was complete in 2015 & all waste rock was required to be underground, there was complete liner & the waste rock was no longer on the surface.
