Mining Executive Kuhn Declared EPA Fugitive on Arsenic, Lead

Former mining-company executive Peter Kuhn was declared a fugitive by the Environmental Protection Agency, which said he failed to surrender for his role in a conspiracy to illegally dispose of arsenic and lead.

Kuhn, former president of Reno, Nevada-based French Gulch Nevada Mining Corp. and Bullion River Gold Corp., engaged in a conspiracy to dump mining wastes on a hillside, county road and stream near a company mine, the EPA said today in a statement. If convicted, Kuhn faces a possible prison term of 20 years.

On July 1, 2010, a U.S. District Court grand jury in the Eastern District of California returned an indictment charging Kuhn with one count of conspiracy and other crimes. Kuhn, 56, becomes the 18th fugitive listed by the agency, according to the EPA’s website.

Bullion River Gold, based in French Gulch, California, was reorganized in bankruptcy after seeking court protection in 2009. Tim Callaway, chief executive officer of Shasta Gold Corp., the successor to Bullion River Gold, said he hadn’t heard from Kuhn in more than two years and didn’t know where he is living. A telephone number on file for Kuhn was disconnected.
