Mining surplus boosts funds for land management, habitat

SBVWCD Newsletter

Mining operations this year brought higher than expected revenue to the Land Resources Enterprise Fund, which supports land management, planning, habitat, Wash Plan needs and other costs associated with lands held by the District. The District has negotiated its mining leases to guarantee a minimum amount of revenue each year, regardless of production. This year, production exceeded that minimum guarantee, resulting in added revenue and large stockpiles for ongoing projects.
