Boise Mayor Bieter to Fight the Good Fight

2.28.2007
Remember that cyanide leech mine proposed on the Boise River near Atlanta Idaho? Unfortunately, the mine is still a reality. However, today Boise Mayor Bieter announced his opposition to the gold mine.

Announce your opposition - send an electronic message right now!

That's right, cyanide - Atlanta Gold, the name of the Canadian mining company, has plans to build an open-pit cyanide heap-leach gold mine in THE HEADWATERS OF THE BOISE RIVER!

This mine threatens the health of all who habitat and enjoy the river. Our fish, wildlife, public health, safety and drinking water are all at risk! Leach mining has been banned in all but 1 other state besides Idaho because of the resulting detrimental effects on the environment.

Protect the Boise River!
