“We are very pleased to receive the Commissioner’s award for outstanding reclamation. In this project, we restored the property to forest, crop, and wildlife habitat land uses, the same uses that existed before mining. Additionally, our reclamation area included wetlands and two permanent ponds, and we are restoring the streams on the property to a condition more conducive to vegetation and wildlife than the original state,” said Patriot Senior Vice President and COO Charles A. Ebetino Jr. “This award attests to our core value of being a good steward of the environment and a good neighbor in the communities where we operate.”
