PREVENT A SANDPOINT

MINING DISASTER. Our lake is at stake. Raise your voice to stop this mine.

O

nce again, a mining corporation wants to construct a massive copper/ silver mine just upriver from Lake Pend Oreille. Once again, they say it will do no harm despite a perpetual discharge of heavy metals into the Clark Fork River. Once again, they contend their massive tailings pile poses no threat even though it would be big enough to cover all of downtown Sandpoint under 300 feet of sludge. So, once again, it’s time for businesses, homeowners, visitors and friends to unite or this time, the mine could be built.
