What’s the background on the proposed Mount Nemo quarry?

In 2007, the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) designated the new Grindstone Creek Headwaters Wetland Complex as a Provincially Significant wetland complex.

In early 2008, Nelson Aggregate was forced to modify their new quarry application and Adaptive Management Plan,

as a significant portion of the proposed quarry site was within this Wetland Complex and

therefore off limits to extraction.

However, the company is still seeking to remove two Provincially Significant wetlands within the Significant Woodland in the Southwest section of the property.

The Provincial Policy Statement supposedly protects these important features.

In June 2006 and again in March 2008,

over 500 concerned citizens wrote letters to the MNR stating their formal objection to this quarry application.

In March 2008, Nelson Aggregate replied to those objectors by sending out a generic response to the issues and concerns that were raised.

Nelson Aggregate has chosen to continue with the Aggregate Resources Act (ARA) application process,

despite formal objections to the MNR from the City of Burlington & the Halton Region that

Nelson Aggregate’s decision to continue down this path was ‘premature’,

due to serious outstanding hydrogeological and

ecological issues.

Now the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources has approved a request by Nelson Aggregate Co. to allow for a Joint Board hearing on the application.

We at PERL believe, as do the City, Region, Conservation Halton and Niagara Escarpment Commission, that

a Joint Board hearing is premature.

The Halton Region JART has not held a public meeting since 2005,

nor published a technical report of its findings.

PERL is aware that the JART have a number of outstanding issues with this application.

It is our understanding that the JART will hold a public meeting to present its report,

but the timing is as yet undefined.

Mining limestone in Indiana.

Central Indiana sits on some of the largest underground aquifers in North America.

Created from glaciers and surrounded by hard rock, filtered by glacial wash, sand and gravel.

To mine the limestone a hole is dug and a underground mine is created.

Because of the aquifers clean pure water must be pumped out and drained away via a creek or stream.

The clean water is pumped into streams that feed a river that has a reservoir feeding it.

In the late summer the impounded water is released into the very river being fed by the mines.

Yet with laws like this the clean water is restricted so the dirty impounded water can be released at higher rates to supply drinking to the capitol downstream, Indianapolis...

Because the miners also surface mine the sand and gravel from above the limestone mines above they must adhere to these laws,

forcing higher cost to all users of this material.

Which is all homeowners, business owners and government,

for the material mined is used to make concrete and asphalt.

These laws are titled to look good but the effects are way outside the title, as is the case here.

Funny thing is the pumps that are outlawed to the miners sit 100 yards from the pumps the local cities have to provide drinking water, because it is pure and clean.

The real crime here is that the miners are Wall streeter's and

when they pumped out the water they also drained many wells from the surrounding neighbors and the courts will not touch the Wall streeter's who pay off the Congress but will prosecute the local owners of small mines that have no pumps.

More fascism, this time under cover of protecting us from the big, bad corporations who ruin our environment.

Fact is these laws are only enforced upon the competitors of those who corrupt our government, Wall streeter's.
