An anonymous photographer sent these pictures of the Nutrien Phosphate Mine in Hamilton County digging under CR 6 east of Jasper, heading north towards the GA-FL line.
Remember, the same phosphate deposits continue north into Echols County, Georgia.
I don’t know quite where these pictures were taken. But if I had to guess, probably somewhere a bit east of where the label is for Nutrien Phosphate Mine on this SRWT map.
There you can see mining already reaching CR 6 in 2023 Google Maps satellite imagery. And you can see the same landowners on each side of CR 6 around there.
Those landowners are different from the WHITE SPRINGS AGRICULTURAL CHEMICALS INC that owns most of the Nutrien Phosphate Mine. But those other landowners may have just sold mineral rights to the miners.
