Our Mission

Denver Brick has recently proposed a significant clay mining expansion (Acme Mine), on State of Colorado Trust Lands, on the east side of the hogback, adjacent to Highway 93 and just north of the Golden City limits.  A growing number of local residents, HOA’s, businesses and the City of Golden strongly oppose or have major concerns regarding this proposed mining expansion. 

To unify and communicate all public opposition, a non-profit corporation, Protect the Hogback (PTH), has been established.  PTH has retained legal counsel to challenge Denver Brick’s application to DRMS to expand clay mining at this site and to represent the collective public opposition within our communities.
