Bowie Resources, LLC., has withdrawn its application to the Division of Reclamation, Mining and Safety in Denver for a technical revision in the permit application for the Bowie No. 2 Mine located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.
During a preliminary hearing in Delta District Court on Tuesday, Jan. 15, Judge Steven Schultz found probable cause for second degree murder charges against Heather Jones.
Jones previously faced three counts in the shooting of Ryan Redifer in Paonia on Jan. 12, 2018 -- assault in the first degree, assault in the second degree and violation of a protection order.
