Tell the Forest Service the Boise River is more precious than gold

USFS is considering Canadian mining company's proposal that threatens
the Boise River with a cyanide-leach open-pit gold mine

Atlanta Gold, a Canadian mining company, wants to build an open-pit cyanide heap-leach gold mine sixty miles northeast of Boise, Idaho's capital city. The mine would be in the headwaters of the Boise River and threatens Boise's drinking water supply, as well as fish, wildlife, and public health and safety.

Please take action.

Atlanta Gold's mine proposal would:

* blast two giant open pits blasted into the mountains
* remove over 1,000 feet of mountain
* dump more than 25 million tons of arsenic-containing mine waste into a valley above the mine
* truck dangerous, toxic chemicals on narrow, unpaved, riverside roads including -- 1.4 million pounds of sodium cyanide, 2 million pounds of ammonium nitrate, 2.3 million gallons of diesel fuel

A cyanide or disel fuel spill could pollute the Boise River and reservoirs where much of the areas drinking and irrigation water comes from. Over 20% of Boise's drinking water comes from the Boise River.

What You Can Do:
Please tell the U.S. Forest Service to protect the Boise River!

Please act by June 9th. Tell the USFS that the Boise River is more precious than gold.

Sincerely,
