Company Drops Bid To Buy Tulsequah Chief Mine

Chris Zimmer : Aug 1.2017

A private company, Black Loon Metals, has dropped its interest in purchasing the abandoned Tulsequah Chief mine, according to sources in Alaska and British Columbia. At the same time an Aquatic Ecological Risk Assessment released by the B.C. government on July 18 documents “unacceptable risks” from the ongoing acid mine drainage from Tulsequah Chief. This should be all the new B.C. government needs to step in and clean up and close down the Tulsequah Chief. There is no visible support for this mine and tremendous opposition in Alaska and B.C. 60 years of acid mine drainage into the Taku Watershed is enough!

A press release from Rivers Without Borders on the latest regarding Tulsequah Chief follows.
