A baseline noise monitoring study was conducted on November 1, 2, and 15, 1978, to determine existing sound levels in areas susceptible to noise impact due to the proposed Duette Mining Operation. The proposed mine site and surrounding areas are generally undeveloped lands with few existing noise receptors. Measurements were performed at seven receptor sites adjacent to, or enclosed within, the proposed mine site. Measured levels were then compared with applicable federal standards and guidelines.
