Court says state broke law in approving gold hunt north of Yellowstone

A Montana district court has ruled that state regulators ignored environmental issues and illegally approved an exploratory drilling project in the mountains north of Yellowstone National Park.

Park County District Judge Brenda Gilbert ruled that the Montana Department of Environmental Quality needs to complete a more extensive environmental review of Lucky Minerals Inc.’s plans to drill for gold in Emigrant Gulch, a narrow canyon near Chico Hot Springs.
