   2.  Applicability/Source Coverage Limitations--Approval herein granted under this Portable Nonmetallic Mineral Processing General Permit is limited to the erection, operation, and modification of portable nonmetallic mineral processing plants: a) which are temporarily (no longer than 24 months) located at construction sites; or, b) which are located at sites for which the applicant is in possession of a valid mining permit or an air quality permit exists for the operation of a nonmetallic mineral processing plant; and, which will be located at these previously permitted sites for periods less than 5 years. Nonmetallic mineral processing plants, as defined in 40 CFR 60.671, means any combination of equipment that is used to crush or grind any nonmetallic mineral.

Nonmetallic mineral processing plants also include any engines required to operate this equipment.
