NDOT honors Comstock Mining
Comstock Mining and other entities were presented a Nevada Excellence in Mine Reclamation Award for Abandoned Mine Lands Hazard Mitigation by the Nevada Department of Transportation at its meeting Dec. 11.
Comstock’s work included the rebuilding of State Route 342 and reclamation of historic mine features.
During a period of heavy precipitation in 2015, cracks were detected in State Route 342 located adjacent to Comstock Mining’s Lucerne Mine operations near Gold Hill in Storey County. Comstock Mining, in a collaborative effort with NDOT and Storey County, engineered to rebuild and align the highway. Also, a new permanent channel was constructed for Gold Canyon Creek, and SR 342 was realigned for safety and stability.
Peterbilt Truck Parts and Equipment, Silver State International, Quick Space, Granite Construction Supply, Camelot Party Rentals and Cumulus Media Group all partnered on the red event for the Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation.
