Why the Back 40 Mine Should Be Stopped
Toxic – uses cyanide to extract gold, produces sulfuric acid
Unsafe – 150 feet from the Menominee River, not built to withstand large floods
Harmful – endangers drinking water supply and aquatic life such as lake sturgeon
Immoral – desecrates sacred Menominee Tribe cultural sites
False economics – benefits a Canadian corporation, harms the local economy
