Amador Mine Cleanup

The Environmental Protection Agency, Honeywell and land developers settled a dispute over who should pay the cost of removing arsenic from the Central Eureka Mine in Amador County, Calif., a gold mine that was in operation from 1855 to 1958.

After the EPA brought suit against Honeywell (successor to the Central Eureka Mining Company) and the developers in February 2006 to recover cleanup costs, Honeywell settled for $2 million.
