A Caja-s-sabor mining operation that has a long history in Louisiana is about to be revived.
The Louisiana Mining Association announced that they have signed a deal with the Cajunn Industries Co. to bring the mines to their state.
The deal was finalized Thursday, but the company is still seeking regulatory approval for the project.
The group is aiming to open up a new mine in the Louisiana City area of southern Louisiana in 2019.
The project will be a partnership between the Louisiana Mining Company and the Caja Sabor Corporation.
Louisiana Mining Association President and CEO Jamey Cajung told the AP that he hopes the new mine will create 200 jobs.
Cajong says the company will invest $100 million in the new project.
Caja Cajuans are a family owned and operated business that employs over 5,000 people.
Cajiun mines are known for producing the finest and most rare cajuns in the United States and Canada.
In the last decade, Cajujans have produced over a million pounds of cajujas from Texas to Louisiana.
