Raise your voice: tell congress this is no place for a mine
Protect the Green River Valley by Mount St. Helens from the threat of mining!
Help protect the Green River Valley from the threat of an open-pit mine! This area is beloved for its natural beauty and provides incredible outdoor recreation opportunities for hikers, bikers, horseback riders, hunters, and anglers! A mine could devastate the Green River, damage the surrounding old-growth forest, and cause great harm to the health and economies of downstream communities. Please sign our petition asking Sen. Patty Murray, Sen. Maria Cantwell, and Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler to support a mineral withdrawal for the Green River, thus prohibiting mineral activity in this area and protecting this incredible landscape.
To: Sen. Patty Murray, Sen. Maria Cantwell, & Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler
Dear Sen. Murray, Sen. Cantwell, and Rep. Herrera Beutler,
Ascott Resources Ltd., a Canadian mining company, has been seeking permits to conduct exploratory drilling for copper, gold, and molybdenum in the Green River Valley bordering the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument. If this mine becomes a reality, the environmental, cultural, and economic impacts to southwest Washington could be catastrophic.
The Green River Valley is no place for a mine!
