Dufferin expected to start operating Paris gravel pit in 2015
The company is expected to begin operations at the 600-acre site in 2015, with on-site activity likely to start in the next three months, according to a report from the Brantford Expositor.
Dufferin is still awaiting a water-taking permit and an environmental compliance approval before it can start operating the pit.
The company is still discussing reconstruction of the nearby Watts Pond road. Dufferin has agreed pay the entire cost (about $1 million) to reconstruct a portion of the road as well as donate $1.5-million worth of aggregate over 10 years to the county.
The company has also noted that it does not anticipate silica to be an issue at the site because of the extremely low amounts of the material in Ontario’s sand and gravel. However, Dufferin has a third party examine all employees per Ministry of Labour requirements.
