The Mill Site property is located directly adjacent to the Brunswick Mine shaft where the Company currently owns 37 acres of surface land. The Mill Site land previously hosted a major commercial lumber mill and 55,000 ft2 of industrial buildings until 1991. All buildings have subsequently been removed. The property has a large leveled area of ~40 acres. The Mill Site has a recycle pond which was constructed in 1988 and used to collect spray runoff from the lumber mill. The pond has a surface area of approximately 3.7 acres and a design capacity of approximately 40 acre-feet. The pond is believed to be lined with a single 2 ft layer of clay and was designed by a registered civil engineer.
