CHESAW — The state has fined the company that owns and operates the Buckhorn Mine near Chesaw $395,000 for repeated and continuing water-quality violations. The major violations by Crown Resources Corp., a subsidiary of Toronto-based Kinross Gold Corp., occurred last year and this year during spring runoff, when the company failed to capture all the water from rain and snowmelt to treat, according to the state Department of Ecology.
