Mobil Chemical Company has proposed an open pit phosphate mine, beneficiation plant and transshipment facility on a 16,288-acre site in southern Polk County, Florida. Mining would involve 15,194 acres, all of which would be reclaimed, and would produce 77 million tons of phosphate products over a 25-year period. The EIS examines alternatives, impacts and mitigative measures related to air, geology, radiation, groundwater, ecology and other natural and cultural systems.
