This week a judge has ruled in favor of the Forest Service in their case against 35 placer mining claims located along the South Fork of the Payette River.

If American CuMo Mining Corp, a Canadian company, has its way the city of Boise will be downstream from one of the largest toxic open pit mines in the West.
CuMo is proposing to build more than 10 miles of new roads and clear 137 drill pads in the Boise River headwaters near Grimes Creek. The company hopes the nearly 3,000-acre exploration leads to development of one of the largest open-pit mines on the planet.
On Monday, Oct. 5, the U.S. Forest Service issued a Decision Notice authorizing the next phase of exploration for the CuMo Project in the Grimes Creek watershed in the headwaters of the Boise River.
