EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
1.1 Introduction and Background of the Applicant
The lease area of Hiyona Limestone Mine is situated near village- Hiyona, tehsilPoanta Sahib, district- Sirmour (Himachal Pradesh). The lease area of Hiyona Limestone Mine is 18.21 hectare. The lease was granted for mining of limestone in year 1963. The lease was renewed on 07/10/1993 for a period of 10 years. The lease has been renewed on 7/10/2003 for a period of 20 years. The Mining Plan was submitted under Rule 22 of MCR, 1960 for renewal of the lease area and the same was approved by IBM, Dehradun vide letter no. 614 (2)/ MP-B206/04-DDN dated 25.05.2005(ANNEXURE- II). The Mining plan was approved for production of about 45,000 tonnes of limestone per year. The leasee intends to increase the production from the mine to about 1,00,000 tonnes for the one year, and then ultimately to 1,80,000 TPA from 2013-14 onwards. Hence, The Modified Mining Plan and Progressive Mine Closure Plan were approved under Rule 10 of MCDR, 1988 and 23(B) & (F) of MCDR, 1988 Indian Bureau of Mines, Dehradun vide letter no. 614(2)/MP-B-206/04-DDN dated 10.11.09 (ANNEXURE- III ). The expected project cost of the mine is Rs. 5.0 Crore. The anticipated life of the mine is 25 years with average production of 1.8 lac TPA after 4-5 years.

Type and Method of Mining
The lease area is located in hilly terrain and is 728 m long in EW direction and about 200 m (western boundary) to 300.30m (eastern boundary) wide in N-S direction. The western boundary lies at an elevation of 1520 MSL and the area slopes down towards east to 1080 MSL near the eastern boundary. The existing working is located in the SW part of the lease area between N-S lines 00 to 300m and E-W grid lines 00 to 100m. The exploitation of the limestone was started since the year 1963 from top most benches at an RL of 1512 mRL. The mining is proposed to be carried out by opencast semi-mechanized method. The bench height will be kept at 6.0 m., whereas the width of the bench will be maintained at more than the height of the bench.

1.5

Drilling and Blasting
The drilling in every bench will be done by the jack hammer drill and compressor. These 32 mm diameter holes will be drilled up to a depth of 6m to be worked in 4 sub-benches of 1.5 m each including 0.15 m sub-grade drilling. Burden and spacing is proposed to be 0.75 m & 1.2 m, each.

INTRODUCTION
1.1 INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND OF THE APPLICANT
The lease area of Hiyona Limestone Mine is situated near village- Hiyona, tehsil- Poanta Sahib, district- Sirmour (Himachal Pradesh). The lease area of Hiyona Limestone Mine is 18.21 hectare. The lease was granted for mining of limestone in year 1963. The lease was renewed on 07/10/1993 for a period of 10 years. The lease has been renewed on 7/10/2003 for a period of 20 years. The Mining Plan was submitted under Rule 22 of MCR, 1960 for renewal of the lease area and the same was approved by IBM, Dehradun vide letter no. 614 (2)/ MP-B206/04-DDN dated 25.05.2005(ANNEXURE- II). The Mining plan was approved for production of about 45,000 tonnes of limestone per year. The leasee intends to increase the production from the mine to about 1,00,000 tonnes for the one year, and then ultimately to 1,80,000 TPA from 2013-14 onwards. Hence, The Modified Mining Plan and Progressive Mine Closure Plan were approved under Rule 10 of MCDR, 1988 and 23(B) & (F) of MCDR, 1988 Indian Bureau of Mines, Dehradun vide letter no. 614(2)/MP-B206/04-DDN dated 10.11.09 (ANNEXURE- III ). The expected project cost of the mine is Rs. 5.0 Crore. The anticipated life of the mine is 25 years with average production of 1.8 lac TPA after 4-5 years. The proposed project is for mining of minerals. As per the EIA Notification 14th September’2006 under Environment (Protection) Act, 1986, the mining of minerals with less than 50 hectare of mining lease is categorized as Category 1(a) - B projects. Interstate Boundary: - Himachal Pradesh-Uttarakhand lies at a distance of 9.0 km towards east from the existing mine; therefore, the project is screened as Category A. • • The applicant will voluntarily adopt environment friendly mining technology. The waste material will be sold to cement plant and other users. The applicant will adopt measures with a view to achieving the proposed environmental standards and to provide guidelines for pollution reduction, reuse and recycle resources as well as to reduce the fugitive emissions. • • The applicant proposes to plant 112 tress every year in their mining areas. For proper management of plantation works professionally, qualified personnel will be put in charge of Environment Control Measures.

Sal is moderate to slow growing, and can attain heights of 30 to 35 m and a trunk diameter of up to 2-2.5 m. The leaves are 10-25 cm long and 5-15 cm broad. Its name means ‘tending to be woody or growing in a tree-like form’. It has been recorded as reaching heights of up to 20 m, although more usually it has a height and spread up to 12m (36ft) x 12m (36ft).In early- and mid-spring, trusses of 15-20 bell-shaped flowers, 5 cm (2in) wide and 3-5 cm (1.25-2in) long are produced in red, pink or white. They have black nectar pouches and black spots inside. The genus is characterized by dimorphic shoots, with long shoots which form the structure of the plant, and short shoots only 1-2 mm long. The leaves on long shoots are non-photosynthetic, developed into three-spined thorns 3-30 mm long; the bud in the axil of each thorn-leaf then develops a short shoot with several normal, photosynthetic leaves. These leaves are 1-10 cm long, simple, and either entire, or with spiny margins. Only on young seedlings do leaves develop on the long shoots, with the adult foliage style developing after the young plant is 1-2 years old. It is a small to medium-sized deciduous tree growing to 20 m tall, with a spreading crown. The bark is smooth and thin, and bleeds latex if cut. The leaves are alternate, simple, 4.5–25 cm long and 3.5–22 cm broad, heart-shaped or with three shallow, maple-like lobes, green above and below, red conspicuous glands at the base of the leaf, and with a 5.5–26 cm long petiole. The flowers are 2.5– 3.5 cm diameter, with five pale pink to purple petals with streaks of darker red or purple in the throat; it is monoecious with individual flowers either male or female, but produced together in the inflorescences. The flowers appear before or with the leaves in loose, terminal clusters. The fruit is a hard, woody pear-shaped drupe 4–6 cm long and 3–5 cm diameter, containing four or five large, oily seeds; it is green initially, becoming dull brown when ripe in autumn.

They live at higher elevations in the summer, and descend during the winter. They are small ungulates with a goat-like or antelope-like appearance. Gorals typically weigh 25-40 kg and are 80-130 cm in length, with short, backward-facing horns. Coloration differs between species and individuals but generally ranges from light gray to dark redbrown, with lighter patches on the chest, throat, and underside, and a dark stripe down the spine. They have woolly undercoats covered by longer, coarser hair, which helps to protect them in the cold areas where they are often found. House mice have an adult body length (nose to base of tail) of 7.5– 10 cm (3.0–3.9 in) and a tail length of 5–10 cm (2.0–3.9 in); the weight is typically 10–25 g (0.35–0.88 oz). They vary from white to grey, light brown to black, with short hair and a light belly. The ears and tail have little hair. The hind feet are short compared to Apodemus mice, only 15–19 mm (0.59–0.75 in) long; the normal gait is a run with a stride of about 4.5 cm (1.8 in), though they can jump up to 45 cm (18 in). The droppings are blackish, about 3 mm (0.12 in) long, and have a strong musty smell. The voice is a highpitched squeak. This is a large rodent, growing more that three feet long and weighs 32 pounds. It is covered in multiple layers of quills. The longest quills grow from its shoulders to about a third of the animal's length. Its tail is covered in short, hollow quills that can rattle when threatened. It has broad feet and long claws for digging. Adult males measure approximately 53 centimeters on average and weigh an average of 7.7 kilograms. Females are smaller, averaging 47 centimeters in length and 5.3 kilograms in weight. This macaque is brown or grey in color and have pink faces which are typically bereft of fur. Its tail is of medium length and averages between 20.7 and 22.9 centimeters. It typically has a lifespan of about 25 years.The species is native to northern India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Burma, Thailand, Afghanistan, southern China, and some neighboring areas.
