“The Bull Mountains Mine has a shameful history of environmental degradation in Montana. That alone should be sufficient for DEQ to suspend and ultimately revoke Signal Peak’s permit” said Melissa Hornbein, senior attorney with the Western Environmental Law Center. “Add to that the consistent lawlessness and corruption Signal Peak management has demonstrated in the management of their mine and other affairs, and this should be an easy decision. These dirty practices—in every sense of the word—have no place in Montana and we hope DEQ will recognize that and take long-overdue action to address it.”
