Coming Sunday: Buckhorn Mountain

A new gold mine could open next year in Okanogan County, nearly two decades after a geologist first found gold at that spot. The Buckhorn Mountain project, formerly called the Crown Jewel mine, would employ 120 people at an average wage of $53,000 a year.

The mine plan has morphed from a large open pit to a smaller, underground operation, but it still is attracting some controversy.

Read more about the Buckhorn project in a story by Becky Kramer in Sunday Business.
