Together, We Can Stop the Mine
Protect our Air, Water, and Quality of Life
Rise Gold, a junior mining company with questionable experience, wants to re-open the Idaho-Maryland Mine in Grass Valley, CA.
Our Nevada County Supervisors will vote on the proposed reopening of the Idaho-Maryland Mine as early as 2021. Residents and businesses think it's a really bad idea.
Here's what's at stake:
*Wrecks our neighborhoods with 24/7 drilling and blasting for 80 years
*Pollutes our air with rock crushing, loading, and truck hauling
*Devours our power using 12% of Nevada County’s consumption annually
*Erases our County’s plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions
*Drains our water using South Fork Wolf Creek as a storm drain
*Reduces property values and threatens 300+ private wells
There's strength in numbers. Learn more and stay updated on our website. https://www.minewatchnc.org/subscribe
