Say NO to Sulfide Mining on the Yellow Dog Plains

2,918 Signatures Goal: 5,000

Kennecott Minerals has submitted a mining permit application under Michigan\'s as yet untested sulfide mining law, for the development of the first recognized sulfide metallic mine in the history of the State of Michigan. This mining application proposes to develop a massive sulfide mine UNDER one of Michigan\'s most important trout streams-the Salmon Trout River;and on the Yellow Dog Plains which is known for its beauty, wild streams, and extraordinary wildlife. Because we feel this application is fundamentally deficient in meeting the protection criteria of Michigan\'s Non-Ferrous Metallic Mining Statute and rules, established to protect our state and waters from the acknowledged risks of sulfide mining; because these risks are too great to this region dependent on a thriving economy based on tourism and recreation; and because the people of Michigan are not willing to allow the degradation of the Upper Peninsula, Lake Superior and U.P. communities-WE URGE THE STATE OF MICHIGAN TO DENY THIS PERMIT.
