Join us to stop this open-pit mine that would negatively impact all those who live and visit the Wasatch Mountains.

Quotes

“In a valley with unhealthy, chronic air pollution from multiple sources, water resources steadily diminishing, and with those trends destined to continue and likely accelerate, it is alarming indeed that projects like this are still being proposed. More specifically, the additional dust and diesel pollution generated by the mine will only add to the health and quality of life consequences from existing sources of environmental degradation in the valley”

– Utah Physicians for a Healthy Environment
“This is not in harmony with Salt Lake County’s vision to protect the unique qualities of our canyons and public health for generations to come,”

- Mayor Jenny Wilson, Salt Lake County
“The potential for the quarry to make a major environmental and aesthetic mess near a highly traveled gateway to a heavily populated area is very large indeed.”

- Salt Lake Tribune Editorial Board
Today’s action provides notice that the Salt Lake County Council intends to protect the forestry and recreation zones in our canyons from the negative impacts of new mining projects. I believe if we don’t act boldly and swiftly, we’ll end up with outcomes that threaten our quality of life. I believe this amendment is necessary to assure that we have ongoing preservation in our canyons, safe recreation, that we mitigate health risks to residents.”
