Newmont CC&V (https://www.newmont.com/operations-projects/north-america/cripple-creek/ ) has filed an application for Amendment 13 to its mining permit with the State’s Division of Reclamation Mining and Safety (DRMS). A separate permit amendment application will be filed with Teller County in late summer of 2020. This amendment can be summarized as a plan for the extension of the Squaw Valley (Gulch), or VLF2, Leach Pad, within the current mine boundary. After the current mining of Schist Island Phase I (approved under earlier permitting) is complete, and an area used to store ore is moved to a leach pad, VLF2 will be extended to the north. Essentially, what people now see as a surface mine and ore storage area (dump), they will instead see a zero discharge Valley Leach Field.
If Amendment 13 is approved, this project will allow the surface mining operations to continue beyond the current projected completion of 2026 to 2028. CC&V’s announced the public comment period for the amendment in the Pikes Peak Courier on 1/15/2020. DRMS will accept comments on the application through February 25.
CC&V’s goal is to make this complex amendment application document available for public review as efficiently as possible and has placed copies in the Victor, Cripple Creek, and Woodland Park Libraries. Users can simply ask the librarian to review CC&V’s Amendment 13 documents. A copy of the permit is also available for review at the Victor City Hall – please contact them for an appointment (https://cityofvictor.com/). In addition, the State of Colorado has taken the responsibility of making the application available on the DRMS website.

Victor water users will soon receive a notice, required by the Colorado Water Quality Control Division, explaining five deficiencies in the latest sanitary survey. All of these deficiencies relate to paperwork and reporting, NOT to the safety of your drinking water. These are minor issues due to a change in forms or updated requirements for reporting. A few are already completed, but weren’t available to the State during the survey. If you have questions, please contact Mickey Groves as listed in the flyer!
Bottom Line: Your water is safe and is some of the best in the nation!!
