Mining is our Past. Not Our Future.

Protect our air, water, and quality of life.

Stop the Idaho-Maryland Mine.

Rise Grass Valley, a junior mining company with a questionable background, wants to reopen the Idaho-Maryland Mine in Grass Valley, CA. 


The decision is coming soon. It’s time to tell the County to Just Say No to the Idaho-Maryland Mine!

Even if you've written a letter before, please write a new one. Our handy new online letter-writing tool makes it quick and easy.

why stop the mine?

Residents and businesses from all walks of life know that putting a toxic business in the middle of our beautiful community today is a really bad idea. 

Both a Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) and an Economic Impact Report have been published. Nevada County Supervisors are expected to make a decision about the project in a few months.


The FEIR includes significant and unavoidable environmental impacts that endanger this community's health and quality of life, including traffic, noise, and aesthetics. There are also serious deficiencies in the FEIR that put the County’s air, water, and more at even greater risk. A few jobs and uncertain tax revenues just aren't worth the risk.
