Public Input Process For Gold Exploration Draws Criticism

Victoria Wicks

A gold prospecting company wants to drill exploratory holes in the Silver City area, near Pactola Reservoir in the Black Hills.

The Mystic District of the U.S. Forest Service held an open house last week to offer information and explain how people can make written comments.

Area residents expressed concerns, not only about mining, but also about the hearing process.
