The Mine is a Top Focus in 2021 for The County

The Union’s front page article on New Year’s Day gave a run-down of the top four issues facing the County Supervisors in 2021, listing the proposed re-opening of the Idaho-Maryland Mine as one of four, along with the vaccine roll-out, economic recovery, and PSPS/Wildfire concerns. In a switch from past articles that were decidedly pro-mine, this article sized up the debate-to-come by presenting the opposition as credible and well organized, while putting Rise Gold in a defensive position and forcing them to explain CEO Ben Mossman’s bad history. A big piece of this win is due to you.

The article remarked on this community’s visible and vocal presence at board of supervisor meetings over the past few months. Thank you! Your respectful participation in our government’s process is earning us the credibility we need in order to win this fight.
