Idaho-Maryland Mine Grading Protections Inadequate


Local advocates from Wolf Creek Community Alliance (WCCA) and CEA noticed grading work to create a road and pad on a parcel between Bennett St and South Fork Wolf Creek. The work was done clearly without adequate storm water management protections. Complaints were lodged with Nevada County Building Dept. This property is on the western portion of the Idaho-Maryland Mine (IMM) New Brunswick site. A county permit had been taken out to build a pad. Unfortunately, the new owner of IMM, RISE Gold Corp, failed to comply with the county grading guidelines.
