Silver stops mining on Caroline land

The Silver Cos. stopped mining and transporting sand and gravel from a 1,209-acre property off U.S. 17 in Caroline after county officials told them to do so this past fall.

Silver had been taking the materials to a site next to the Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center where the company is constructing a memory care facility, said company executive Jud Honaker.

Silver didn’t have a permit for the mining on its property near Moss Neck Manor and Fort A.P. Hill, and Caroline officials told the company to stop. Silver complied with the oral order, and no written notice was issued.

Silver is now working on submitting an application that would allow Waldorf, Md.-based Chaney Enterprises to mine sand and gravel on a portion of the property. Silver also wants to build a small, high-end resort on the property that could be used for corporate retreats. Click here for more detail on the plans.
