Take action to protect the Adirondacks today!
by Charles C. Morrison
The Atlantic Chapter urges a resounding “no” vote on November 5 for the proposition to amend Section 1 of Article 14 of the State Constitution, the “forever wild” provision, to allow NYCO Minerals Inc. to mine wollastonite ore on a 200-acre parcel of Adirondack forest preserve, a.k.a. Lot 8. This lot adjoins one of NYCO’s currently operating open pit mines, the Lewis mine, in the Lake Champlain Valley in the Town of Lewis, Essex County.
ON NOVEMBER 5, SIERRA CLUB URGES "NO" VOTE ON PROPOSITION #5 TO ALLOW MINING ON FOREVER WILD LAND IN THE ADIRONDACK FOREST PRESERVE
In May, the Sierra Club and Protect the Adirondacks won two decisions in the Appellate Division of the NYS Supreme Court in our lawsuit against the proposed mega-development near the hamlet of Tupper Lake, winning a motion to go forward with an appeal on the discovery process, and denying the developer's motion to shorten our time to file our papers.
The Adirondacks have never faced a bigger threat.
