HRH has requested approval for a minor change to the project as outlined in the EIA to explore an opportunity to sell low purity gypsum/anhydrite, primarily as a soil amendment. HRH has been aware of the presence of anhydrite and low quality gypsum within the Upham deposit, that it would need to be removed as part of normal quarrying operations and that his product is not suitable for wallboard manufacturing, however we later learned it is commonly used to increase calcium without changing pH in soil. Supplying this product does not require any operational change to the quarry and all mitigation and environmental precautions will be strictly adhered to. Demand for this product is minimal compared to the need for gypsum in wallboard manufacturing, and will account for a maximum of 8% of total yearly production.
Any questions please feel free to contact me directly.
