Cattany <br />Division Director <br />Natural Resource Trustee <br />RE: Notice of Intent to Conduct Prospecting; DRMS File #(s) P-2008-024, P-2008-025, <br />P-2008-026,P-2008-027,P-2008-031,P-2008-032,P-2008-033,P-2008-034, <br />P-2008-035,P-2008-036 <br />Dear Mr. Klatt: <br />Please be advised that on June 2, 2008, the Governor will sign Senate Bill (SB) 228 into law. Thus, <br />new statutory provisions will become applicable for all Prospecting Notices, and modifications to <br />Prospecting Notices, submitted or approved on or after June 2, 2008. <br />Specifically, SB 228 revises the confidentiality provisions of C.R.S 34-32-113 applicable to <br />Prospecting Notices. A copy of the SB 228 is included with this notice for your convenience. <br />Based upon the requirements of SB 228, the Division of Reclamation, Mining and Safety (DRMS) <br />hereby finds that the above-referenced Prospecting Notice is deficient because the applicant has not <br />yet designated those portions of the application it believes are confidential. The DRMS will not issue <br />an approval decision and the applicant is not authorized to commence prospecting operations until all <br />application deficiencies, including the confidentiality issues, are adequately resolved. <br />Confidentiality may only be asserted for those portions of the application "relating to the mineral <br />deposit location, size, or nature, and as determined by the Board, other information designated by the <br />operator as proprietary or trade secrets or that would cause substantial harm to the competitive <br />position of the operator". <br />Please either withdraw and resubmit a revised application with the appropriate designations, or <br />provide a detailed application supplement, such that the revised application or application supplement <br />addresses the confidentiality designations required by SB 228. Please note that the Division will not <br />require payment of a new fee for the withdrawal and resubmittal option. <br />Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. <br />Office of Mined Land Reclamation <br />Office of Office of <br />Mined Land Reclamation Denver • Grand Junction • Durango Active and Inactive Mines
