Breaking News: Permit Issued For Howardsville Mill
From Silverton Standard, the place where you can write!

The Pride of the West Mill in Howardsville.
Two objectors to a plan to reactivate the Pride of the West Mill in Howardsville have dropped their complaints, clearing the way for approval of a conditional permit for the mill.
The Colorado Mined Land Reclamation Board had scheduled a hearing for today (Thursday, Aug. 9) in Denver to consider the objections, but that hearing has been canceled. With no objections, the Colorado Division of Reclamation, Mining and Safety’s staff approval of the project takes effect.
“All objecting parties … have withdrawn and the applicant, Colorado Goldfields, has consented to the division’s conditions,” said Wally Erickson, of the DRMS Durango field office. “Therefore, the division’s recommendation for approval with conditions … appears uncontested. As such the office has determined a formal board hearing is unwarranted and the division’s previous recommendation for approval with conditions is revised to represent the division’s decision.”
