Animas River Community Forum
Come join us for a very informative bi-monthly meeting. Our main topics will be next steps for the Forum and updates from Sub-Committees. More information and agenda to come.

Now is the time to come full circle to examine lessons learned from reclamation projects across the region, how they are making a difference environmentally, and what rec-lamation will look like into the future. We also have the opportunity to consider how industry in the region has utilized innovative mining technologies and environmental mitigation plans to energize hardrock mining in the San Juans. In its seventh year, the conference will also highlight projects and mining in the Uncompahgre Watershed. We will field-tour Uncompahgre Watershed Partnership’s tailings stabilization project and Ouray Silver Mine’s mining operations and mitigation designs in the Canyon Creek sub-basin, as well as Idarado’s past and proposed remediation projects in the Red Mountain Creek sub-basin. Diverse stakeholders will have opportunities to examine and discuss successes of mining and reclamation to date, as well as contemplate their futures in this region.

The conference is currently soliciting abstracts for presentations, posters, & roundtable discussions. Please submit your abstract and supporting information via the Abstract Submission Form available on the MSI website by March 15th at 5pm. More information:  www.mountainstudies.org/sjmrc
