C.R.S. Section 34-1-301
Legislative declaration


The general assembly hereby declares that:


The state’s commercial mineral deposits are essential to the state’s economy;


The populous counties of the state face a critical shortage of such deposits;


Such deposits should be extracted according to a rational plan, calculated to avoid waste of such deposits and cause the least practicable disruption of the ecology and quality of life of the citizens of the populous counties of the state.


The general assembly further declares that, for the reasons stated in subsection (1) of this section, the regulation of commercial mineral deposits, the preservation of access to and extraction of such deposits, and the development of a rational plan for extraction of such deposits are matters of concern in the populous counties of the state. It is the intention of the general assembly that the provisions of this part 3 have full force and effect throughout such populous counties, including, but not limited to, the city and county of Denver and any other home rule city or town within each such populous county but shall have no application outside such populous counties.
