This message from Friends of the Lower Blue River is to clearly explain what is ahead with the Peak Materials proposed gravel mine at Peak Ranch Resource and meetings with the Colorado Division of Reclamation, Mining and Safety (DRMS)
I had a very productive conversation with Eric Scott, Environmental Protection Specialist for the DRMS. The course of action in the weeks ahead is very specific. And it is important for all of us to understand the process.
The hearing date is set by the Colorado Division of Reclamation, Mining and Safety to consider the Peak Materials proposal for the Peak Ranch Resource gravel mine. It will be a Zoom Conference for those who submitted letters to the DRMS. Here is the information:
Event: Informal Public Meeting
Date: Wednesday, March 3, 2021 Time:3:00 pm – 4:30 pm
The DRMS (State Division of Reclamation Mining and Safety) has further delayed it's decision date on DRMS File M2020-041 for Peak Ranch Resource to March 16, 2021. The decision date was scheduled for today, January 15th. It has now been further delayed. We will continue to keep you posted.
