Official Denial of Peak Ranch Resource Issued

Three months after the State Division of Reclamation, Mining and Safety (DRMS) held a series of three public hearings on Peak Ranch Resource, the official ruling has now been issued. The document formally lays out the findings of fact and conclusions of law and order regarding Peak Materials attempt to gain a state permit to mine gravel on the Blue River. The ruling details the unanimous denial of the permit request.

Barring an appeal by Kilgore Industries, the parent company of Peak, this could end the gravel mining effort on a pristine area of the Blue River Valley. Once the order has been uploaded to the DRMS website, we will distribute it for your review. Thanks to everyone for their support and involvement to prevent the gravel mine from becoming a reality.
