Professor Al Gedicks update on the “Back Forty Mine” Feb 16

Event Dates: 
02/16/21
Tues Feb 16, 6:30 pm Professor Al Gedicks update on the “Back Forty Mine” - via zoom. Al Gedicks, Executive Secretary of the Wisconsin Resources Protection Council ( www.wrpc.net), will give a presentation on the current status of the “Back Forty Mine” as proposed by the Canadian company Aquila Resources.  Opposed by numerous counties, tribal governments, and a host of environmental organizations, the proposed mine construction was recently stalled when a Michigan judge overturned Aquila’s wetland permit. Find out why the Back Forty name is very misleading and why this proposed mine would be a threat to the Menominee River, which flows into Green Bay just a few miles away from Door County peninsula. What are Aquila Resources options now that the wetland permit is overturned? Get a full update and have your questions answered at this online event.
