Cattany <br />Nucla, CO 81424 Division Director <br />Natural Resource Trustee <br />Re: Notice of Intent Application, SR-13A, P-2009-020, Notice Approval <br />Dear Mr. Williams, <br />The Division of Reclamation Mining and Safety has finished the review of the above referenced Notice of Intent. It <br />appears the notice meets the minimum requirements of Rule 5. Therefore staff is please to inform Cotter that <br />notice is complete and approved. <br />Due to the small size and limited disturbance, staff elected not to calculate a reclamation bond but will use Rule <br />5.3.3(1) and require the minimum $2,000.00. This is below the $5000.00 warranty to be held by the Department <br />of Energy (DOE). Per Rule 4.2.1(6) when mining on federal land and the land management agency requires a <br />financial warranty be posted the amount posted to the state shall be the difference between the amount required <br />by the agency and the state or a minimum of $100.00. <br />Per Rule 5.13(b), Cotter has 60 (sixty) days from the date of this letter to submit the $100.00 bond otherwise the <br />notice may be denied for failure to correct all deficiencies which includes the bond. Please submit a Financial <br />Warranty and proof of DOE bond to the Division's Administrative Assistant Elizabeth Taliaferro in the Denver <br />Office. Any questions regarding the warranty should be directed to Elizabeth at 303-866-3567, Ext. 8148. <br />If you need additional information please contact me at the Division of Reclamation, Mining and Safety, Grand <br />Junction Field Office, 101 S. 3rd St., Suite 301, Grand Junction, Colorado 81501, or by telephone no. 970.241.1117. <br />Sincerely, <br />G.
