The Colowyo Mine is located approximately 28 miles south of Craig, Colorado.

The Phase II areas total approximately 48 acres, and the Phase III acres total approximately 183 and all areas are shown in detail on Maps 1 and 2 within the application. The status of the reclaimed areas is consistent with the requirements of the approved reclamation plan which includes achievement of Phase I and in some cases Phase II bond release, establishment of vegetation that supports the post-mining land use, a reduction of contributions of suspended solids below pre-mining levels, a minimum of 5 years since the last seeding and rill and gully repair, and reclamation parcels have met the requirements of the revegetation success criteria for two years.
