Make Your Voice Heard - BLM Taking Public Comments

The BLM is accepting public comments until October 31, 2012 on a 20-year extension of the withdrawal of the Illinois River between Deer Creek and the mouth of Briggs Creek from exploitation under the 1872 Mining Law.

Illinois River

Unless the mineral withdrawal is extended, mining will take precedent over all other uses on this scenic section of the Illinois with disastrous results for the river and the public.

Please take a moment to raise your voice in protecting the environment against corporate greed.
