We need your help to protect Maine from the effects of open pit mining! Contact your legislator today!
Last year the Maine legislature passed a bill to streamline open pit mining in Maine. This year, environmental groups, including the AMC, are supporting legislation, LD 1302, that adds four key provisions into the permitting process to greatly reduce the adverse impacts of mining.
The AMC, along with other groups, has launched a new website to help you learn more about metallic mining in Maine. We hope you’ll use this resource to learn more about the risks posed by mining to our environment. Visit: www.maineminingwatch.org for more information.
