The Deadwood Standard Project is a new kind of low-impact, small-in-scope gold mining that will tread lightly on the Black Hills environment. With high gold prices and new technology, it is feasible – and desirable – to excavate in small areas, process ore in small batches and reclaim the land as we go.
- Selective, targeted excavation.
- Water quality protection.
- Enclosed ore processing.
- Off-site refining.
- Detailed geotechnical monitoring.
- Concurrent reclamation.
