Tell Montana: Yellowstone is more valuable than gold

Yellowstone is more valuable than gold. But right now, foreign mining companies are planning two toxic, job-killing gold mines bordering Yellowstone. Local landowners and local business owners are banding together to stop these mines and protect Yellowstone's gateway. We're working with them to fight our old-school mining laws for a fair chance to shape our futures. CLICK HERE to tell Montana: Don't mine Yellowstone!

Here’s your chance to help: Montana’s agency that permits mines is taking your comments on a Canadian company’s proposal to explore for gold in Emigrant Gulch, just a few miles north of Yellowstone. You can comment through Dec. 12.

Please join us in speaking out to protect Greater Yellowstone’s lands, waters, and wildlife from gold exploration. Contact Montana’s Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) today and let them know that Yellowstone’s doorstep is no place for gold mines. Thank you for all you do to help us protect Greater Yellowstone, the wild heart of North America – now and for future generations.
