Project overview

Twin Pines Minerals, LLC has applied for a Clean Water Act permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for the purpose of extracting titanium and zirconium from a 2,414-acre tract of land, the closest point of which is 2.7 miles southeast of the Okefenokee Refuge. However, we will only be mining 898 acres and at any given time only excavating a very small section of the property (1.5 to 2.5 acres) to an average depth of 50 feet, advancing 100 feet per day.

We will remove the noted minerals, which make up a tiny fraction of the soils and sand, and then replace the soil to present-day elevations and contours within 20 days. The average time any given portion of the mining pit will be open is only five days.
