LA BAJADA MESA — Just off Waldo Canyon Road, south of Interstate 25, cows graze the dusty land where an Albuquerque company wants to mine basalt.

Albuquerque-based Rockology and Buena Vista Estates, a development company owned by Peter Naumburg and Hugh J. Graham Jr., have applied to rezone and mine a 50-acre parcel of land on the mesa. Buena Vista Estates owns more than 5,000 acres, which are currently for sale, on the mesa. A hearing on the application is scheduled Feb. 20 before the Santa Fe County Development Review Committee.
