Sherman <br />Executive Director <br />Ronald W. Cattany <br />Division Director <br />Natural Resource Trustee <br />The Colorado Division of Reclamation, Mining, and Safety (DRMS) approved the above referenced Notice of Intent to <br />Conduct Prospecting (NOI) on June 1, 2009. The approved NOI allows the excavation of a 35 foot long by one foot <br />wide by two foot deep trench, collection of rock samples from the trench, followed by backfilling and reclamation of <br />the trench area. The ground disturbing activities approved under the NOI are limited to the trench. DRMS determined <br />that the $200.00 bond you have provided is adequate financial warranty for reclamation of the trench. <br />When you and I met at the DRMS office on February 12, 2009, we discussed baseline hydrologic characterization in <br />the vicinity of your claims that would be necessary to support any future permit application to conduct mining. DRMS <br />recommends that you provide a sampling and analysis plan for review prior to initial sample collection in order to <br />better assure that the characterization will meet DRMS criteria. The sampling and analysis plan should describe <br />proposed sample collection points and their hydrologic relationship to the veins targeted for mining and to surface <br />disturbances, such as waste rock dumps, that might be associated with future mining. The plan should also describe <br />sample collection and preservation methods, field measurements to be made during sample collection, such as flow <br />rate from springs and pH of the sampled water, laboratory analyses to be conducted on the samples, number of samples <br />to be collected, and approximate schedule for sample collection. <br />If you have any questions, please contact me at 303-866-3567. <br />S incerel-y; <br />Allen C.
