Back Forty Mine: Urging Sustainable Practices in Mining

Urging Sustainable Practices in Mining

This short film offers a revealing look into Aquila Resources, Inc.’s mining project, approved by the EPA and Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. This documentary raises vital questions about the proposed 800-foot open-pit metallic sulfide mine along the Menominee River. It explores the staggering statistic that US mining activities contaminate up to 27 billion gallons of freshwater annually.

This film serves as a stark reminder of the delicate balance between industrial development and environmental preservation. It underscores the potential permanent damage to drinking water sources and ecosystems from toxins released in metallic sulfide mining. With the EPA identifying metal mining as the most toxic industry, accounting for 37% of all recorded toxins released, this film prompts critical examination of such activities’ consequences.

This urgent call to action urges viewers to consider the environmental impact of mining and the need for responsible, sustainable practices to safeguard natural resources and ecosystems. Explore the complexities of mining approval and its implications now.
