Lawsuit seeking to squelch mine plans near Yellowstone NP dealt setback after procedural rebuke

BOZEMAN — Environmental groups seeking to block a Canadian company’s search effort for gold on private land near Yellowstone National Park face a setback after a judge found they didn’t follow procedural rules in challenging a state law.


The Park County Environmental Council and the Greater Yellowstone Coalition argue a 2011 law violates Montana’s constitutional right to a clean and healthful environment. The law prevents a judge from blocking exploration work while state-issued permits are being challenged.
