Burying Montana streams in mine waste

In order to build the Montanore mine under Montana's Cabinet Mountains Wilderness, a mining corporation proposes to bury four headwater streams, wetlands and springs with 120 million tons of mine waste.

Dumping wastes directly into rivers, streams and wetlands may be cheaper for the mining company, but it is not a necessary way of doing business.

Harming threatened bull trout and Wilderness

To keep the mine tunnels dry, the mine will lower the groundwater by up to 1,000 feet within the Wilderness Area, severely depleting flows in the most important streams in the region for threatened bull trout.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers decides

In order for this to happen, the Army Corps must issue a "404 permit", so-called because it would be authorized under section 404 of the Clean Water Act.

TAKE ACTION: Urge the Army Corps of Engineers to oppose the Montanore proposal to bury Montana's waters with mine waste.
