Last month, Kinross, which operates the mine, withdrew a major proposal to explore for gold on about 9,200 acres of federal, state and private land. After spending $10 million on preparation of an environmental impact statement, the company said it planned to pursue other exploration options because the EIS was too costly and taking too much time.
