Statement: Clean Water Act Lawsuit Update

The following statement is from Midas Gold Idaho CEO, Laurel Sayer, in reaction to the U.S. Forest Service’s recent request to be dismissed from the ongoing Clean Water Act lawsuit concerning the historical Stibnite Mining District:

“We are continuing to review what was just filed, so our comments are limited.

Importantly, Midas Gold has not actively mined on the site and the current conditions around water quality are decades old and related to activities largely stemming from World War II. We filed the complaint against the U.S. Forest Service to make sure all relevant parties in control of the site today are a part of the proceedings as we work to identify a solution. We are unfairly being sued over alleged Clean Water Act violations on lands owned by the federal government.

As a company, we will continue to focus on how we can provide sustainable, meaningful improvements to the site through the Stibnite Gold Project.” – Laurel Sayer, CEO of Midas Gold Idaho
