Personally I find it strange that departments like the EPA come down with these decisions. I wonder where the EPA will get their next funding from? Will the Government suddenly find another source of funds? How about the 1400 unemployed, perhaps they will get temporary position with the EPA. Surely, this department can review the application and then impose conditions which allow progress to occur.

Tony, have you into looked the history of the mining company for caring for the environment and meeting EPA regulations?? If they have a good record then you may have a point.
