Bowie Resources, LLC., has withdrawn its application to the Division of Reclamation, Mining and Safety in Denver for a technical revision in the permit application for the Bowie No. 2 Mine located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.
At about 9:50 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 14, officers of the Delta Police Department were dispatched to a robbery reported at Arby's, located at 107 Gunnison River Drive. An extensive search of the area was conducted and the suspect was not located.
The suspect was reported to have walked into Arby's and after a brief conversation with an employee, was able to leave the store with a small amount of cash and coins.
