Pine Chee

One of OHA's projects, the Pine Chee Mitigation Site, is located south of Chesaw at the corner of Chesaw Road and Myers Creek Road. A spring system at the south end of the 29-acre site supports approximately five acres of forested wetland as well as a pond at the north end of the site. The wetland and surrounding acreage is protected under the mine's plan and fenced to prevent degradation by cattle and provides habitat for a wide variety of plants and animals.

As part of the settlement agreement between OHA and Crown/Kinross, a covered picnic table and an informational signboard have been installed by the Youth Conservation Corps of Curlew.

OHA has built a hiking trail onsite with the help of the Curlew Job Corps, and outdoor education opportunities have been hosted onsite. Volunteer opportunities will continue be created as OHA moves forward with this project.
