Can you help save Oak Flat, AZ? Please contact the congressmen in the latter part of the message and let them know what you think. I got this from N. Freeman:

Here is a short report on the situation:www.mining-law-reform.info/Apache%20Leap%20Report.htm
And if you want the long version: www.mining-law-reform.info/IndexSup.htm

Some basic talking points

One of the key areas Resolution Copper Company will take over is Oak Flat which was protected by Eisenhower in 1955 (Public Land Order 1229).

Why does this company need to turn the public land into private land to do mining? Do they want to turn the public land into a waste dump-which would be questioned-or at least regulated-on public lands?

This company has not shown itself to be a good steward of the water resources in the arid Southwest. They were going to dump millions of gallons of toxic water from an old mine shaft into Queen Creek. Now an irrigation district is supposed to take it-but their contact person never answers the phone.

All Arizona residents, also contact Senator Kyl and McCain—and inquire why they are not doing anything for Arizona except facilitating creating another environmental and water mess.
