Help us prevent a mining disaster. Our lake is at stake.
That’s the Rock Creek Alliance message as we enlist citizens to raise their voices against the Rock Creek Mine. This ad was part of our ongoing efforts to raise awareness of the jeopardy that the mine poses to Lake Pend Oreille and the greater Sandpoint area, just downstream of the proposed mine site.
“Sandpoint has everything to lose and absolutely nothing to gain from this monster of a mine,” the ad concludes.

Write Your Representatives
You can make an enormous difference simply by e-mailing decision-makers. Let them know that mining beneath a federally designated wilderness area—polluting public rivers, streams and lakes and jeopardizing wildlife—won’t be tolerated or condoned. Ask them to hold accountable the agencies under their jurisdictions, such as Montana DEQ, the U.S. Forest Service, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
