1998 FWOC Resolution No. 21:
Molybdenum Mine on Tributary of Salmon River in
|World class fisheries on
Thompson and Squaw Creeks are threatened by acid mine tailings from the
proposed enlargement of operations at the Thompson Creek Mine.
The creeks flow into the Salmon River which also supports critically
important fisheries. The Federation of
Outdoor Clubs believes that the proposal as presented does not provide
adequate protection for either the fishery or the River's and Creeks'
other outstanding values.
|ACTION: The FWOC urges its member
groups and members to contact Regional Forester, Jack Blackwell, U.S.
Forest Service, Federal Building, 324-25th Street, Ogden, UT 84401 and
express opposition to this proposal.
