The proposed sulfide mines in Northeastern Minnesota threaten the clean water, pristine lakes, rivers, forests and wetlands that support a rich diversity of wildlife, as well as the livelihood of the 18,000 people who work in the thriving recreation and tourism industry in Northern Minnesota.
Our jobs and our way of life are at risk and we are fighting back the only way we know how. We are traveling by water from Ely, Minnesota to the Washington DC to tell our story to everyone who will listen.
We don’t have deep pockets or a marketing machine like the mining companies. We are relying on you to help us spread the word and tell your friends. Educate yourself and your friends about sulfide mining and call your elected officials. Call them all and call them often– they need to hear from you. This is just the beginning and we need your help. Learn how you can get involved today!
