Could the pending restart of mining operations at Lancaster County’s Haile Gold Mine benefit Kershaw County? While environmental concerns are being expressed in and around the town of Kershaw, and environmental benefits may come through wetlands mitigation near the mine and in lower Richland County, Kershaw County leaders are looking at a potential positive impact to the local economy. “We are looking at the possible outcomes on Kershaw County, though we have no reason to believe, at this point, that there is any possible significant environmental impact on us,” Kershaw County Administrator Vic Carpenter said in an email.
