DESERT HOT SPRINGS, CA – A surface mining operation has started up in Desert Hot Springs with the operator planning to operate for the next ten years removing over nine million tons of material in that time. The mine has started up even though it has not met conditions required by the state agency that oversees mining operations.

In fact, its already in business, exporting sand to a project in Twentynine Palms and rock for a project in Cathedral City making money.

The project has been the source of numerous inquiries by Desert Hot Springs residents wondering about the plume of dust rising up from an area near State Route 62, near Pierson Blvd.
