The Sierra Nevada Conservancy Board on Friday awarded a grant of $75,000 to the City of Jackson to complete a "Removal Action Workplan" for a 159 acre parcel of legacy mine lands adjacent to the city known as the Oro de Amador property. The workplan seeks to identify ways and means to remove abandoned mine waste tailings.

The property was purchased by the City of Jackson in 2006 and is slated to be used for a park and open space after the mine land remediation is completed.
