In summary, Mr. Vogel alleges that the NDEP Water Pollution Control permit issued to First Liberty Power Corp. was affected by error of law. Specifically, Mr. Vogel alleges that First Liberty Power Corp. does not have the appropriate mineral rights or business license to be the lawful permittee for discharge permit NEV2009104.
