Be very careful, people. This looks like the poison apple the witch offered to Snow White. Keep your eye on the prize: the preservation of the health of the desert. Don't be distracted by pretty promises.

I hope people have not become so taken in by the radical portions of the environmental movement that they will not accept the gifts of mining companies or denegrate it when offered. These same mining companies build most of the infrastructure in this state and others thrugh paying taxes and as gifts. My family is 7th generation in Arizona and recognizes this.
Mining is a necessary industry in the U.S. for without it 51% of our countries power could not be supplied from coal. Do we want to become reliant on foreign countries for our metals and fall into the same trap we did with oil. look araound you and you will find that almost everythig you use todat comes from extractive industries and most cannot be recycled.
