Environment Overview


The state-of-the-art underground mine and surface processing facilities have been meticulously designed to ensure minimal environmental impacts and disturbance to neighbors.

Designed to meet the values of Nevada County and California, the project produces gold at a fraction of the impact of its competitors.

The result is a project which provides very substantial benefits to the community which is designed to have no significant environmental impacts.

In November 2019, Rise submitted an application for a Use Permit to Nevada County to allow the reopening of the Idaho-Maryland Mine. Nevada County’s independent Draft Environmental Impact report is expected to be released soon and is a major milestone in the permitting process.
