Can you explain this statement?

I think he is referring to "The Mine" area :-)

Indeed; a true testament to how an appropriate mining paradigm can truly coexist with climbing above and upon the very same land.

Unfortunately, with the proposed block cave process of RCM's/Rio Tinto's, coexistence in the true sense is not possible and perhaps some if not all of The Mine Area will become inaccessible for various real and technical reasons.

Classing up the joint.
It looks like on Wed, May 15th there will be a vote on the land swap bill (H.R. 687) in the Natural Resources Committee of the House:

naturalresources.house.gov/cal...

Now would likely be another crucial opportunity to remind the voting members of what's at stake by giving away Oak Flat.

Until this is addressed I feel that climbers should not cooperate with any of the requirements RCM is placing on us through this "agreement". Doing so will only further the misperception that climbers have acquiesced to RCM's demands.


couldn't agree with you more.. we lost the vote last week in the House 23 to 19

For the sake of public information: The QCC has not spoken up on the proposed The Southeast Arizona Land Exchange since the group had it's split internally. If memory serves me correct, it was the summer of 2010. If fact, now the remaining members within the group have been silent on the Land exchange completely. There are many that have spoken that they are pleased and support other groups that include climbers from AZ and other parts of the US that are in opposition of that Southeast Land Exchange as it is proposed. In the year of 2013 there must to be a way that land will not be destroyed by the mines current proposed methods. Linda



Solution mining.

But I doubt you would approve of injecting acids through your aquifer...
