Iron Mountain Mine is located in the southeastern foothills of the Klamath Mountains near Redding, California. Mined for copper, gold, pyrite, silver, and zinc until 1962,the contamination from mining operations is now being remedied through hydraulically dredging contaminated sediment from Spring Creek Arm, treating the dredged sediment, conveying the sediment approximately 8,000 to 12,000 feet, and placing the sediment in a newly constructed confined disposal facility.
