North Wind Construction Services LLC began work on a mine reclamation project outside Helena, Mont. in July.  North Wind Construction Services is excavating and transporting contaminated soil and mine waste from the Lee Mountain Mine site and is performing non-vegetative reclamation of excavated and disturbed areas, dust suppression and road maintenance and hauling additional mine waste already stockpiled at the Lee Mountain staging areas. 
CDM Federal Programs Corp., a full-service consulting, engineering, construction, and operations firm, competitively awarded North Wind the $1 million contract in June 2012.  North Wind mobilized crews and equipment to the site in mid-July. The project is expected to be completed by December.
