The former Callahan Mine site was an open-pit mine developed in Goose Pond, a shallow tidal estuary of approximately 75 acres in the town of Brooksville, Maine. From 1968 through 1972, approximately five million tons of waste rock and 800,000 tons of ore-bearing rock were mined from the open pit. The waste rock was disposed on-site in three large piles and was also utilized to create a dam for the tailings impoundment. The outside footprint of the tailings impoundment encompasses approximately 17 acres and contains 725,000 cubic yards of mining related waste (tailings). The tailings impoundment and waste rock pile #3 are both adjacent to the Goose Pond Salt Marsh, creating a potential risk of significant ecological damage. Metals contamination (copper, zinc, lead, and arsenic) has been detected in groundwater and soil at levels above remediation objectives within the tailings impoundment and waste rock pile #3. Sediment and surface water within Goose Pond have also been impacted by the contamination. In summary, the major work elements are remediation of the tailings impoundment, remediation of waste rock pile #3, slope stabilization of the tailings impoundment, consolidation and capping of the tailings impoundment, sediment excavation and disposal in a confined aquatic disposal cell, remediation of residual contamination at waste rock pile #2 and the ore processing area, site restoration and mitigation, and monitoring.

This is a request for proposals at this time. Neither telephonic, mailed nor faxed requests for hard copies of this solicitation will be accepted.
