Activist Groups and Publications

"We believe as deeply in the need for free expression of opinion as we do in mining to provide the resources we need to better our environment. We have one earth and limited resources, let us optimize both mineral recovery and land stewardship methods for the benefit of all." - Andy Robertson and Tom Durkin, September 11, 1996
