Comment Deadline – Triple G Placer mining proposal – Rapid Creek/Johnson Siding,

October 26, 2023 @ 11:30 pm - 11:59 pm

October 26th is the Comment Deadline – Triple G Placer mining proposal

It is a placer mine proposal, one mile southwest of Johnson Siding. It may be within a half mile east of Placerville Camp.    Hand tools will be used and a battery powered recirculating sluice.  Water will be brought from off site, but the sluice water will be dumped on site, which is 150 feet from the creek. We assume Rapid Creek is “the creek”.  Closed roads will be opened for traffic from camp to mining site.

Here is a link to the Triple G project to view map and scoping letter: https://www.fs.usda.gov/project/blackhills/?project=53352.

For more info:  Jonathan Manning (Engineer) at – Custer SO (605-673-9292) or Mystic Ranger District – 605-343-1567.  Ranger Jim Gubbels is on vacation – acting Ranger is Ben Schumacher (recreation at Mystic).
