DJJ subsidiary seeks limestone mining permit

PITTSBURGH — A David J. Joseph Co. (DJJ) subsidiary has sought permission to operate a surface mine in Missouri in order to expand the processing area at one of its auto-shredding facilities.

The company did not return calls for comment, but according to documents filed with the state, Advantage Metals Recycling LLC has applied for a permit from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources to mine limestone on a 21-acre parcel adjacent to its Jackson County facility.

Mining the parcel to be level with the elevation of the scrapyard will allow Kansas City, Mo.-headquartered Advantage Metals to expand its processing area and provide a basin for stormwater control, it said in the permit application.

The 10-year mining effort would take place in three phases, with an approximate start date of Nov. 1.

The recycler owns the property and the mineral rights. Cincinnati, Ohio-based DJJ picked up the site in 2008 when it purchased the assets of Galamba Metals Group LLC (, Feb. 20, 2008). The location had previously been mined but the permit expired in 2008.

A public notice is now running in local papers and interested parties have 15 days to request a formal hearing or informal meeting on the matter.
