Crossfire seeks plant in Colorado.

Crossfire Aggregate Services has applied to open a gravel mine and concrete factory at Durango, in La Plata County, Colo., in the Bondad area about a half-mile from the Animas River, according to the Durango Herald.

The operation will produce up to 876,000 tpy of aggregate, while the concrete plant is designed to produce up to 150 cu. yd. of concrete per day, according to documents related to the mine's Environmental Protection Agency air permit application.

The application comes from Crossfire Aggregate Services, an offshoot of Crossfire, a local industrial firm that has its headquarters near Durango-La Plata County Airport, Colo. Both companies are owned locally by Ezra and Brook Lee.

Crossfire Aggregate has applied for a federal air quality permit, a storm water permit, a La Plata County permit, an operating permit from the Colorado Division of Reclamation, Mining and Safety, and to the Colorado Department of Transportation for an access road off of U.S. Highway 550.

The air-permit application focuses on particulate matter. Plans call for using misters and other mitigation measures. Crossfire Aggregate could break ground on the mine in spring or early summer 2016, said Jay Nielson, general manager.
