Site description

Brickhaven No.2 Mine Tract “A” Structural Fill is located approximately four miles southeast of central Moncure, North Carolina. The structural fill area is about 145 acres, owned and operated by Green Meadow. The fill is within a clay mine property with the area of 301 acres. The property located within the structural fill area was previously owned by General Shale Brick, Inc., which operated the site and an adjacent property as a clay mine beginning in 1985 for their off-site brick manufacturing facility. Mined clay was stockpiled and then transported approximately 3.5 miles south to Brickhaven, North Carolina for brick manufacturing. You can find the industry-reported data here. For more information on the Structural Fill, see EIP’s 2019 National Coal Ash Report.
