Mining Operation Restoration

According to a story this morning on Virginia business dot com, Petersburg-based Atlantic Strategic Minerals plans to invest more than $50 million to restore and reopen a mining operation in Dinwiddie County and a concentrator plant and mineral separation plant in Sussex County. According to the governor’s office, the two locations will be producing critical minerals that are used in various supply chains. At the Sussex County facility, it means the creation of more than 70 new jobs. The aim of the venture is to rebuild the United States’ domestic supply of critical minerals that serve as essential components in supply chains for a variety of industries, including the aerospace and defense industries.
