Rico Mine Reclamation Project

In 2011, Anderson Engineering hired Flare Construction to provide a full range of remediation construction services for its Rico Colorado Mine Reclamation — a once booming silver, lead, and zinc mine. To date, we have completed the building of large drying cells for the removed solids; created a pilot test wetland to determine the feasibility of a larger scale passive water treatment system for the area; installed new dikes; improved existing dikes; installed riprap; and improved spillways for this ongoing project.
