Notification of EAB Final Decision

The Nevada Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Division of Environmental Protection, acting under authority of a PSD delegation agreement, issued a PSD permit to Newmont on May 5, 2005, granting approval to construct the TS Power Plant, a 200 megawatt pulverized coal-fired boiler plant to be located near Dunphy, NV. The Association for Clean Energy (“ACE”) filed a petition for review with the EAB on June 3, 2005. The EAB denied review of the petition on December 21, 2005. The permit became effective on December 21, 2005, not on June 4, 2005 as stated in our May 5, 2006 Federal Register notice.

Judicial review of the permit decision, to the extent it is available pursuant to section 307(b)(1) of the Clean Air Act (“CAA”), may be sought by filing a petition for review in the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit within 60 days of our May 5, 2006 Federal Register notice.
