Eagleridge mines has started a 11km road into the boundary of the Avalon Wilderness area and the boundary of the Salmonier nature park. Hawke Hills Ecological Reserve is also east to the road. . We want everyone who reads this to remember this sentence: "A MINE BETWEEN TWO RESERVES AND A NATURE PARK."
When this road is completed track machines, trucks, drill equipment, etc...will be brought in to drill 110 test holes or maybe more.
The damage is already started.
Road is currently under construction as this page is being created (November.21.2018)
If drilling results are positive expect a full operating gold mine is expected. A gold mine requires for separations purposes of gold a full toxic recipe with devastating effects on the environment. Examples of this are: Arsenic, Cyanide, Mercury etc...Most of these end up pumped into a holding pond and pass history has proved the containment of these toxic mixtures is never successful. The lakes, rivers, watershed end up with the toxic mixture. In this area there are two salmon rivers, the head water of salmonier river, brook trout, brown trout....etc and home to varies wildlife including moose, coyotes, fox, lynx, rabbits, birds...etc Yes folks everything is there that nature provides. I am avid outdoorsmans and to my knowledge wildlife does not like mining.
THIS PROJECT HAS TO STOP AND IT HAS TO STOP NOW.
WE ASK EVERYONE TO MAKE A NOISE THROUGH GOVERNMENT, MEDIA, PROTEST, SHARE THIS PAGE, PETITIONS, VISITS TO THE SITE, PICTURES OF THE DAMAGE TO THE LANDSCAPE....ETC STAND UP AND PROTECT OUR NATURE WE DON'T WANT A MINE IN OUR BACKYARD. IN NUMBERS OUR OUTCOME CAN ONLY BE POSITIVE.
To stop the mine from going ahead.
My name is Mike Cooze I am a avid outdoorsman at the age of 14 I started to explore the Avalon wilderness area and all its wonders. I have hiked it, I have fished it, I have canoed it, and camped in very beautiful places. My intentions are to save this pristine area for my children to enjoy and many generations to come. Simple as that!
