Portal Rehabilitation Project.
The Pennsylvania Mine drains heavy metal laden water into Peru Creek,
a tributary of the Snake River, and results in one of the most significant
single loading sources contributing to water quality degradation.
The mine is developed on six different “levels,”
designated A through F, with A being the highest in elevation
and F at the bottom.
The first goal of the project is to establish safe access to the underground
workings on both Level F and Level C of the Pennsylvania Mine.
Following conplretion of the project,
underground investigations will be conducted
to provide a more comprehensive understanding of mine hydrology
and eventual remedy selection.
|Project managed and developed by:
Colorado Division of Reclamation Mining & Safety.
