The California State Lands Commission has unanimously approved the phasing out of operations at Cemex’s Lapis sand mine in Marina, California. The decision will end over a century of operations onsite, which has been a fixture on the Central California Coast since 1906.

The agreement to close the mine reflects a settlement of disputes with the State Lands Commission, California Coastal Commission, and the City of Marina, Cemex said in a press release. Under the plan, the plant’s dredge mining operation will end by the end of 2020, and all plant operations will cease in 2023.

“Cemex is committed to caring for our employees, our communities, and the environment,” said Eric Wittmann, Cemex USA Region President – West Region. “The agreement balances the interests of all the stakeholders of the Lapis operation, including our employees, suppliers, customers, and the community.”
