At Bullion Mine, project keeps waste under control

Contract workers secure a protective layer over a mound of mine waste at the Bullion King Mine near Red Mountain Pass north of Silverton. The project aims to reduce erosion and runoff at the site by leveling and covering the waste. Eventually, vegetation should cover the site and blend in with the surrounding landscape.
Shaun Stanley/Durango Herald Workers with Simbeck Liners of Mancos spread a rubber lining to cover the waste pile at the Bullion King Mine near Red Mountain Pass.
