Where is the Proposed Mine?
In early 2018, Alamance County approved a permit for a crushed stone quarry on 300+ acres in the middle of Snow Camp. The proposed quarry would be bordered to the north and east by Workman Rd and Quakenbush Rd, to the south by Clark Rd, and to the west by Snow Camp Rd.
The map to the left pinpoints the location of the proposed quarry.
