Holden Mine 12/6/2011
Heavy snow fall in the Railroad Creek valley has prompted IntalcoAluminum to wrap up the Holden mine early work projects for the season. All equipment and personnel will be off site by the middle of December with a projected return date set for the spring of 2012, weather permitting.

These early work projects are part of the  site improvement work carried out this past summer and fall in preparation for the cleanup of the former Holden Mine site located near  Holden Village andLucerne..

The Forest service, Washington State Department of Ecology and the US Environmental Protection Agency will continue to analyze the over 1,000 comments on the proposed plan and are in the process of  developing a Record of Decision for signature after the holidays. The Record of Decision serves as the formal document stating the work the potential responsible party, Intalco Aluminum, is accountable for and the remedy selected for the cleanup operations set to begin in 2013.
