Coeur Alaska

Letter from Don Argetsinger to William Boyd

July 20, 1995

William F. Boyd, Vice President
Corporate Counsel and Secretary

Coeur d'Alene, Idaho 83814

Dear Mr. Boyd:

My staff and I have reviewed the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency XL Pilot Project presentation prepared by Coeur Alaska, Inc. dated July 14, 1995. This application, if accepted, will provide a more flexible regulatory strategy for permitting the Coeur Alaska Kensington Mine Project.

Klukwan, Inc. supports this application and we recommend that it be selected by the Environmental Protection Agency as an XL Pilot Project. This participation will provide environmental benefits to the Southeast Alaska region.

The fresh water discharge of treated effluent proposed in this application will allow the Kensington Project to meet environmentally safe standards and alleviate local concerns about discharges into marine waters in an important fisheries area. Further, this proposal will provide a means to meet these environmental standards in a cost effective and technically feasible manner.

Coeur d'Alene Mines Corporation is authorized to pass this letter of support for the XL Project application to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.


Don Argetsinger
