Bowie Resources, LLC., has withdrawn its application to the Division of Reclamation, Mining and Safety in Denver for a technical revision in the permit application for the Bowie No. 2 Mine located near Somerset.
The request was dated Jan. 5 and sent on behalf of Bowie Resources by Tamme Bishop, project engineer with J.E. Stover & Associates, Inc., in Grand Junction. It was addressed to Jason Musick with the DRMS. The letter provides no reason for the request to withdraw the application, or any indication whether Bowie will re-apply in the future.
Approval of the revision would have allowed Bowie to construct a DAXIOM plant that would convert coal mine waste to synthetic gas, which could then be turned into either diesel fuel or fuel oil, according to a public notice published Nov. 30 and Dec. 7 in the Delta County Independent.
