Coeur d'Alene Mines Corp. May 8 said the U.S. Forest Service said an Environmental Assessment is the preferred level of review for permitting the proposed alternative tailings facility for its Kensington Gold Mine near Juneau, which could allow for a conclusion of the permitting later this year. Construction of the mine and mill is essentially completed except for the tailings facility.
