The Sugarite Gob Reclamation Project – Phase VIII is located about six miles northeast of Raton in Colfax County, New Mexico. The project area (see Sheet 1 of 3) is on unplatted public and private land within the Maxwell Land Grant.

The Yankee-Vukonich Maintenance II Project is located about eight miles northeast of Raton in Colfax County, New Mexico. The project area (see Figure 7) is on public and private land within Section 30, T 32 N, R 25 E and Section 36, T 32 N, R 24 E, NMPM.

The focus of these joint projects is to provide remedial reclamation to better control erosion and sedimentation at previously reclaimed gob (coal mine waste) piles in Sugarite Canyon State Park and in Yankee Canyon. These joint projects include the following work:

• Construction of a rough bed rock channel with coir rolls at Gob Site D in Yankee Canyon.
• Gob fire extinguishment, full soil treatment and application of hydro-slurry at Gob Site D in Yankee Canyon.
• Planting of seedlings at Gob Sites A1, A2S, A3, A4, A5 and A8 at Sugarite and at Gob Site D at Yankee Canyon, including planting hole amendments, seedling protection tubes where required, and maintenance and protection of plantings for six months.
• Grading required for access to the sites along designated access roads and trails and closure of these roads and trails as specified by ripping, amending where indicated, and reconstructing and installing waterbars.
• Hydroseeding using an extended-term flexible growth medium and broadcast seeding at designated areas and areas disturbed by construction.

The Contractor shall leave project areas in as good or better condition than before disturbance.
