Fact sheet supports why BLM should continue to reject Mineral Leasing in the White Mountains National Recreation Area because hardrock mining (including placer and suction dredging operations) is incompatible with public outdoor recreation benefits and conservation values it was set aside for and enjoyed today.
Fact sheet lists past impacts and potential mining effects BLM described in its 2013 Mining Supplement for the White Mountains NRA. It describes risks to headwater, tributaries to Beaver Creek, Fisheries, Fish and Wildlife, Subsistence, and general impacts of past mining in Beaver and Birch Creeks.
Public Comments and Responses: State of Alaska, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Citizens Advisory Committee on Federal Lands, Sierra Club Legal Defense Fund, and many individuals
Fact sheet for White Mountains Mining leasing BLM is considering to put in a supplement to the Eastern Interior Plan
The public hearings were a great success! Of 60 people who testified at 2 recent hearings in Fairbanks, only 3 spoke in favor of opening the White Mountains National Recreation Area to mining. You have until April 11 to send in written comments. Please support Alt. B, the best for conservation and tell BLM what the White Mountains means to you!
