A restraining order on a statewide suction dredge mining ban on rivers was rejected this week in court, according to a Center for Biological Diversity press release.
In June, state officials closed a loophole by redefining the dredge mining equipment in an emergency regulation. Following a hearing, a temporary restraining order issued by a Siskiyou County Superior Court on July 3 prohibited wardens from enforcing the new definition in Siskiyou County.
On Monday, a San Bernardino County Superior Court suspended the order, effectively banning suction dredge mining statewide.
