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 it as early as 2021. Residents and businesses think it's a really bad idea.

Here's what's at stake:
*Wrecks our neighborhoods with 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
