PURPOSE: Usibelli Coal Mine's, stated purpose is to economically extract commercial quantities of low sulfur coal from
Blocks 2 through 5 of Usibelli Coal Mine’s (UCM) 4,798 acre Jumbo Dome Mine coal lease (JDM).
PROPOSED WORK: Usibelli Coal Mine's proposed project is the discharge of up to 2,550,000 cubic yards of topsoil and
180,000,000 cubic yards of overburden and interburden material in 132.6 acres of wetlands, 0.5 acres of non-wetland waters
and 481.3 acres of uplands. The overburden and interburden materials are not potentially acid-forming, toxic-forming, or
alkalinity producing and, therefore, do not require special handling. All work would be performed in accordance with the
enclosed plan (sheets 1-10), dated April 2016.
