Sign Our Petition: Require Mining Proponents to “Prove-It-First” that Sulfide Mines Won’t Pollute
In every case where sulfide mining has been tried in a water-rich environment like northern Minnesota, the result has been acid mine drainage and/or toxic metals pollution of surface water, groundwater or both. That is a dismal 100% failure rate to protect clean water. Sign a petition to prevent Minnesota from becoming the site of another doomed experiment in sulfide mining.
“I was 95% sure PolyMet would happen. Well, you and your partners have forced a recalculation of those odds. Of course, the battle is not over, but the recent legal victories are huge, and I couldn’t imagine them a decade ago. I’m delighted and heartened that our donations are so effectively deployed. Thank you!” – Peter Leschak
