c) Any modification of the characteristics of a project included in Annex I or in Annex II, when said modification meets, on its own, the thresholds set out in Annex I.
d) Projects subject to a simplified environmental impact assessment, when requested by the developer
Annex I: 2 Group. Extractive industry.
a) Exploitations and fronts of the same authorization or open-pit concession of mineral deposits and other geological resources of sections A, B, C and D whose use is regulated by the 22 / 1973, of 21 of July, of Mines and complementary regulations, when one of the following circumstances occurs:
1. Holdings in which the area of affected land exceeds 25 ha.
2. Holdings that have a total movement of land exceeding 200.000 cubic meters per year.
3. Exploitations carried out below the water table, taking as reference level the highest among the annual oscillations, or that may suppose a decrease in the recharge of superficial or deep aquifers.
4. Exploitations of deposits linked to current dynamics: fluvial, fluvial-glacial, coastal or wind. Those other deposits and peat bogs that due to their content in fossil flora may have scientific interest for palynological and paleoclimatic reconstruction. Extraction of peat, when the surface of the extraction ground exceeds 150 ha.
5. Exploitations visible from highways, highways, national and regional highways, protected natural spaces, urban nuclei above 1.000 inhabitants or located at distances less than 2 km of such nuclei.
6. Exploitations of substances that may suffer alterations by oxidation, hydration, etc., and that induce, in limits higher than those included in the legislation in force, to acidity, toxicity or other parameters in concentrations that pose a risk to human health or the environment environment, such as ores with sulfides, solid fuel exploitation, farms that require treatment by in situ leaching and radioactive minerals.
7. Extractions that, even if none of the above conditions are met, are less than 5 km from the limits of the area that is expected to be affected by the tillage and the annexed facilities of any existing open-pit mining exploitation or concession.
