DEQ approves permit for Black Butte Copper Project

Kxlh - The Montana Department of Environmental Quality issued its Record of Decision Thursday for a proposed copper mine in Meagher County.

The Black Butte Copper Project would be located about 15 miles north of White Sulphur Springs and would be operated by Tintina Inc.

Approval of the project comes a little more than a year after state officials released the project's Environmental Impact Statement, or EIS.

According to the EIS, the mine would impact just over 300 acres of land with little to no direct impact on hunting, fishing or other recreation opportunities in the area.

Some anglers, guides and conservationists had expressed concerns over the mine's proximity to the Smith River, one of Montana's premiere fishing destinations.

The EIS reported the project could substantially lower groundwater levels around the mine reducing some flows in nearby creeks but would have little impact on surface water levels and water quality.
