Smoky Canyon Mine | Parametrix
Smoky Canyon Mine
Montpelier, Idaho
Client: J.R. Simplot Company

The Smoky Canyon mine operations consist primarily of open-pit mining for phosphate ore that is manufactured into fertilizer. To assist the mine’s efforts to expand resource recovery, Parametrix prepared a joint Army Corps of Engineers’ and State of Idaho permit application and developed mitigation strategies for impacts to streams and wetlands during construction. We evaluated potential mitigation sites and prepared a compensatory mitigation plan for agency approval.
