Mining & Fish (Responsible Leadership re the Land)

MINING NEEDS TO CHANGE NOW!

“America’s public lands — and the fish and wildlife that they call home — are struggling with the effects of a century of hardrock mining. Recognizing that an outdated federal law is to blame for much of the damage, America’s sportsmen have set their sights on reforming the 1872 Mining Law.

The 1872 Mining Law, which governs hardrock mining (gold, copper, silver, etc.) on America’s public lands, was signed into law more than a century ago. While the economies, cultures, and politics have changed in the West during the past 135 years, the mining law has not. More than 270 million acres of federal land are open to hardrock mining under the law, mostly in the Rocky Mountain West.”
