BR Benson Mines


The Build-Ready Program is advancing a solar project on a privately owned former iron ore mine that was closed in the 1970's. The project is to be sited on a former tailings pile with a potential buildable area of 172 acres located in the Town of Clifton, St. Lawrence County. The Build-Ready Program is progressing with efforts to secure site control, environmental diligence, interconnection request preparations, and engaging the host community.
