Event description
DEQ is hosting a public meeting and taking public comment regarding a proposed mine tailings project at the Golden Sunlight Mine.

About this Event

The Department of Environmental Quality is seeking public comment to aid the development of a Draft Environmental Impact Statement to analyze the environmental impacts from a proposed mine tailings project at the Golden Sunlight Mine in Whitehall, Mont.

The project is an amendment to the current operating permit and would allow Golden Sunlight to excavate and reprocess tailings from their Tailings Storage Facility to extract a gold and sulfide concentrate. Once the tailings are reprocessed, the facility footprint would be reclaimed for land uses such as grazing, recreation and wildlife habitat. The project would extend the life of the mine by up to 12 years.

Public Meeting Via Zoom

March 4, 2021

6 p.m.-8 p.m.

The meeting will provide the public with information on the proposed project and an opportunity to submit oral comments. Please note this is a meeting to determine the scope for the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). DEQ will use this information to draft an EIS and there will be an opportunity for the public to comment on that document.

DEQ is accepting questions in advance of the meeting to review during the meeting. To submit questions, please click on the register button and complete the process. You will be prompted to input any questions you may have.
