No mining on Boundary Waters' doorstep
Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue,
The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness is America's most-visited wilderness area: beautiful, nearly pristine, and irreplaceable. It is also uniquely vulnerable to the potential impacts of mining on its doorstep. The cancelled study of the potential impacts of copper-nickel mining on the Boundary Waters must be allowed to be completed. When the future of one of America's most special places is at stake, decisions that could impact its health forever must be made with all possible data at hand.
