A statement was issued by Highlands Resource Corporation on withdrawing all permits for Rocky Flats and Standley Lake.
The following statement was just issued by Highlands Resource Corporation: After listening to community concerns and considering all of the factors relating to its proposed development of 5,200 acres of leasehold in Jefferson County, Highlands Natural Resources has determined that the best course of action is to withdraw all of the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) spacing and permit applications associated with Rocky Flats, Standley Lake and the dog park.
This determination comes after extensive discussions with communities and other stakeholders, including people who live in the project area, mineral owners, county, state and federal representatives, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, COGCC and others.
Highlands appreciates the concerns and debate raised by its Jefferson County development plans and is taking the conscious step back from its development plans to affirm its commitment to being a responsible and transparent operator within the state of Colorado.
