What water tributaries are in the immediate area?

The principal stream near the mine is Sheep Creek—to protect Sheep Creek, the mill facility and cemented tailings impoundment are one mile south of Sheep Creek. A tiny streamlet, Raccoon Creek, lies between the facility and Sheep Creek. A branch of Little Sheep Creek lies east of the surface facility but in a different sub-tributary drainage. Our top priority is protecting all water sources.
