The Information Network for Responsible Mining, Conservation Colorado, Earthworks, San Juan Citizens Alliance and Sheep Mountain Alliance file this objection to Piñon Ridge Mining LLC’s request to extend temporary cessation status on the Van 4 Mine, permit no. M-1997-032, for a second five-year period. The staff and members of these organizations are directly and adversely affected parties as defined by Rules 1.1(38.1) and 1.13.6 and take a direct interest in the operations and final reclamation of the Van 4 mine site. The staff and members of these organizations regularly use and enjoy the public lands at and surrounding the Van 4 Mine. We appreciate the opportunity to provide these comments and request that a hearing to review the status of the Van 4 Mine be held before the Mined Land Reclamation Board.
