Letter: Destroying public lands

Editor:

The proposed mine in the Kirkland area — where is EPA oversight in this? Environmental Impact Statement, regarding chemicals for extraction, cancer-causing dust, water quality of the valley for the future? Is the valley there a future superfund site?

In an Aug. 3 notice in the Courier, regarding tree cutting by the U.S. Forest Service. They say it’s about 504 acres to be cut from Copper Basin to Thumb Butte. Where are the environmentalists here too?
