As a legacy mine site and a proposed critical minerals mine, the Stibnite Gold Project sits at the intersection of two of MMSA core issues: 1) the policy and technical challenges associated with reclaiming legacy mine sites; and 2) the country’s urgent need to reduce our reliance on imports of critical minerals like antimony and to strengthen domestic critical minerals supply chains. MMSA has hosted webinars pertaining to critical minerals and co-sponsored four Abandoned Mine Land Summits with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Colorado School of Mines, Trout Unlimited, the University of Nevada/Reno, and the University of Arizona, School of Mining & Mineral Resources. We are thus well qualified to review and comment upon the legacy mine issues discussed in the Forest Services’ SDEIS for the Stibnite Gold Project.
