Idaho General Mines would like a 3,000 acre copper, gold, silver and molybdenum mine on the northern border of the Mt. St. Helens National Volcanic Monunmet...in the national forest. The company is in the very early stages and If the public is loud against giving away this beautiful public land to a private corporation act now! The Bureau of Land Management and the Forest Service hold the key to approval for the lease or they can say NO to Idaho General. Word is the federal agencies are split on the issue so public action against a mine could tip the scales against Idaho General, who is applying its own pressure on officials. idaho Generla calls the Bureau of land Management everyday to ask about how their lease application is coming along and the public needs to call just as often to stop this.
