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 ( amm.com, 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.
