Revett Minerals Flyer

We all got the Flyer to Test our I.Q. on Rock Creek Mine and Revett Minerals.
They say they are "producing vital metals while protecting the environment". A few year back there were studies on this company and what they are REALLY about. Please check out our Northwest Montana Environmental Blog

Revett may be providing Jobs BUT after WR Grace andthe deadly lies Lincoln County has been exposed to in the past,can we afford short term jobs with long term possible health risks,losing our fisheries, polluting our waters, and information that will harm usthat won't surface for years after THEY take the money and run.
They say this is good for the Economy of Northwest MontanaHowever, I wonder if this really is. I know we need jobs butI am not certain that giving tax breaks to big business (Revett Minerals),so we can break the backs of our locals and have future lossof wildlife, fisheries and water quality it the answer.

So Money is Given to Big Business toCreate Jobs for Lincoln County. Theremust be a better way to create jobs.
I have read the flyer and want to believe whatthey say about fish and inert gases, however,time ALWAYs exposes other issuesand than Big Business has moved on whilethe locals are left to take the heat, the health issuesand the Loss of Lifestyle.
Mining Below Wilderness Lakes is just Wrong.I will NEVER hike in the Cabinet mountains, I willalways know that beneath the surface is mining activitiesthat could harm me and that DO harm the animals.With this it will not Seem Pristine.
If This can happen under a Wilderness than it makesyou want to stand behind Montanans for Multiple Useand those who want the Ten Lakes Scenic are to NOTgo to Wilderness status. If this status makes it so that the areacan be opened up to mining and drilling than I, an advocate of Wildernesssay No to turning the Ten Lakes into a Wilderness area.
I use to think wilderness meant protection for an area.
It does not, it means that Big companies are open for Businesswhere you used to hike, horse ride, snowmobile, and fish.
Revett Mineral does not have a Clean past. Google the company, Researchtheir previous names and what they have REALLY been up to.
