The board, or any member thereof, or the hearing officer designated by such board, shall have power to subpoena witnesses and administer oaths. The district court shall have power to enforce by proper proceedings the attendance and testimony of witnesses, and the production for examination of books, papers and records. Witnesses subpoenaed by the board or a member thereof or the hearing officer shall be allowed such fees and traveling expenses as are allowed in civil actions in the district court, to be paid by the party in whose interest such witnesses are subpoenaed. The board, or any member thereof, or the hearing officer, shall make such inquiries and investigations as shall be deemed relevant. Each hearing shall be held at the county seat in any county where the dredge or other placer mining is being conducted or where any of the lands involved in the hearing are situate, or in the county of Ada, as the board may designate.
(b) If the hearing involves a permit or application for a permit, the final order of the board, together with the agency record, as provided in chapter 52, title 67, Idaho Code, shall be filed in the office of the director of the department of lands. A copy of the order shall be sent to the applicant or holder of the permit involved in such hearing by United States mail.
(c) Any applicant or permit holder aggrieved by any final decision or order of the board shall be entitled to judicial review in accordance with the provisions and standards set forth in chapter 52, title 67, Idaho Code.
