COLUMBIA, S.C. — Romarco Minerals will double the amount of cash it sets aside for an environmental cleanup at what is expected to be the largest gold mine in the eastern United States, according to a settlement agreement announced Thursday.

In resolving the last major legal obstacle to digging the mine north of Camden, Romarco agreed to post $10 million in cash for the cleanup, the Sierra Club said.

The company previously had offered $5 million, but the Sierra Club insisted on a higher amount to better ensure any contamination or other damage is addressed when the mine closes in about 2030.
