A typographical error in the public notice led the state Board of Minerals and Environment to postpone a decision Thursday on transferring five exploration notices of intent to Holy Terror Mining Co. from Mineral Mountain Resources Ltd. for sites in the Battle Creek drainage near Keystone.
The delay was caused by a mistake in a geographical reference.
Mineral Mountain Resources explored for gold near Keystone from 2012 to 2015. The company had an agreement to eventually acquire an interest in some mining claims owned there by Holy Terror Mining Co., but Mineral Mountain ultimately terminated the agreement and shifted its focus to exploring for gold near Rochford.
Board members weren’t certain Thursday whether a new public notice with the correct legal description could be issued in time for the matter to be on their Oct. 18 agenda. The following meeting is set for Nov. 15.
