kingman: Hualapai Valley Solar Passes Planning & Zoning - 10/06/09 10:07 AM
Hualapai Valley Solar is one step closer to reality.  Pending approval by the Western Area Power Administration the 4,160 acre solar power facility will include an electrical substation, a 500 kilovolt transmission line and hopefully provide power to the Meadview-Phoenix line.  Next step is public comments on issues in connection with the Environmental impact statement.
The company has signed a letter of intent with the City of Kingman to provide 2275 acre feet of waste water to help cool the plant adding income to the city.

kingman: New Mine on the Horizon for Kingman AZ - 06/08/09 04:31 AM
A Canadian Company, Rocher Deboule has manganese in its sights in Mohave County.  They have purchased Artillery Peak located 80-90 miles south of Kingman.
A company spokesman cites that currently 95% of the manganese used to make U.S. Steel is imported from overseas, particularly from China.  China's own needs have reduced the amount of manganese available for export.  One of the few American reserves of this mineral is located at Artillery Peak.  Although mined before, the company believes there may be up to 150 million tons of 3-4% grade ore, making Artillery Peak the largest source of manganese in the U.S.

kingman: It's a day to "Bear" All - 05/07/09 11:31 AM
I have a small confession, I'm a city girl...born and raised back on the east living in Kingman Arizona.
I've gotten accustomed to seeing cattle, quail, coyotes, and other critters right out my back door.  But today takes the cake.  A bear wandered down from Hualapai Mtn and showed up at our local post office.  Of all days, I left my camera sitting on my desk so I could not get a photo.  I'm sure you will all be able to view the incident and hear all the news at the Kingman Daily Miner Website.

I'm just loving living … (0 comments)

kingman: Kingman is getting greener continued....... - 05/05/09 03:09 AM
Mohave County makes Fox News this morning.
It seems that environmentalists are opposing President Obama's renewable energy goals.  One of the projects mentioned is the solar energy plant scheduled to be built outside of Kingman.  Those concerned are opposing water usage, and particularly the effect on the Sonoran Desert Tortoise.
We can have non-polluting energy projects and much needed jobs for people or we can protect the Tortoise.
I hope clear heads go forward to make the right decision.
