Judge Deals Legal Setback to Idaho Gold Mine Project

"Mosquito Gold President and CEO Brian McClay took in stride a federal judge’s decision that the Forest Service needs to do more analysis of its exploration program."

"'This Is a Bump in the Road,' the Canadian Mining Executive Said as He Waited for a Plane at the Boise Airport.

Mosquito Gold Is drilling hundreds of holes in the upper part of the Grimes Creek watershed to further map out the so-called CuMo copper and molybdenum ore body. It estimates the deposit is worth as much as $16 billion and could create 1,000 high paying jobs in the Boise Basin for years."
