Originally licensed in 1958, extraction in Area 4 was rehabilitated in 2013. Employees/contractors began at the top of the hill and worked their way down spreading the overburden, and dressing it with topsoil. A mixture of buckwheat, perennial and annual rye, tall fescue, alfalfa, crown vetch, and white clover was applied -- all by hand!
