“We are proud of our successful mine reclamation efforts in Fairborn and are honored to be recognized as an industry leader in nature conservation,” said Karl Watson, Jr., President of CEMEX in the USA. “This award is testament to our ongoing commitment to minimize our footprint and mitigate the impacts of our quarry operations in the communities in which we live, work, and operate.”

Mining at the site will be completed in 2012, and all reclamation efforts are scheduled for completion in 2014. CEMEX received the same recognition in 2008 for the successful reclamation of its Beavercreek clay mine site in Beavercreek, Ohio.

CEMEX works diligently to responsibly manage the land within and around its operations. Worldwide, 85% of CEMEX’s active cement and aggregates sites have quarry rehabilitation plans in place, and the company is on track to reach its target of 100% by 2015.
