As a resident of Jardine, Montana, where Dr. Werner proposes to explore gold mining, I oppose the Crevice Gold mine for three reasons:
1. People. We in Jardine know what it is to live with polluted land and water because of gold mining. Arsenic, cyanide, acidic run-off poisoned our land and water. Fish died in Bear Creek. Our garden soils still have to be tested before we can eat out of them. The mess from the last gold mine can never be completely cleaned up. There will always be a tailings pond.
