Mining company owes royalties to Coeur d'Alene Tribe
A mining company says it needs more time to figure out how much money it owes to the Coeur d'Alene Tribe of Idaho.

Sterling Mining Co. is in bankruptcy court. The tribe says it is owed $1.8 million in royalties and associated penalties from the Sunshine Mine.

Sterling is disputing the amount and has been given a four-month extension to file a reorganization plan.
