No gold mining at Idaho-Maryland Mine

As a resident whose property is bisected by South Wolf Creek, I write to express my vehement objection to approval of this gold mining operation.

Impacts to the creek would be severe due to the extensive dewatering. Riparian habitat, ground water, and wells along this beautiful and currently healthy creek would be immeasurably harmed in the near term and for generations to come. We are still monitoring Nevada County from the effects of mining operations of the 20th century.
