DCC Opposes Suction Dredge mining in Kantishna
A request to do in-stream suction dredge mining on a small fresh water stream with important grayling habitat has been submitted to the National Park Service, and DCC commented on the Environmental Assessment the service developed.
We opposed this project unequivocally, as a threat to streambed habitat and nearby resources, and because it reverses settled policy supporting willing seller buyout of mining claims in Kantishna. NPS has had more than 26 years to make the buyout, and because of a failure of vision, has neglected to do so.
