- Water Quality Violations in 2017 and 2018: Evaluation of Golder’s Responses | February 4, 2019
- Comments on the Closure of the Buckhorn Mine | October 3, 2016
- Comments on the Adaptive Management Plan | May 30, 2014
- OHA explained problems with the 2006 AMP and suggested changes that would make the plan approvable. The AMP Crown/Kinross submitted was very similar to the original document, instead of updating the plan based on the effectiveness of monitoring and the past five years of monitoring data as required.
- Gold Bowl Water Quality | July 2, 2010
- OHA’s comments on the Kinross/Crown Resources June 24, 2010 letter to the Washington Department of Ecology regarding the Action Plan for Observed Seepage in Gold Bowl Creek.
