Thank you for visiting. The purpose of this website is to educate and inform the public about threats to the Kipawa watershed.
Our current focus is on mining and specifically the mining of rare earths. Kipawa Lake is an important ecological entity, source of drinking water, a world renowned tourist destination and has significant cultural and historic value to local communities. These uses and values should be given priority over a short-term economic gain from a toxic open-pit mining project. Please read and share the information provided and please contact us with your questions, concerns or to be more involved.
What can you do to help?
- We are always in need of volunteers.
If you are against the mine and interested in helping please email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Sign the petitions
- Write letters to local, provincial and government officials expressing your opposition to mining in the Kipawa watershed and
the proposed rare earth mine.
- Support our fundraising initiatives or donate - Links to be published at a later date
(funds are required for printing information booklets, posters, administrative costs, education events for the public, etc.)
- Be informed. This website has a great deal of researched, factual information about mining, rare earth mining, the proposed projects and impacts. Please read it. Share this knowledge with your friends, family, neighbours.
Contact us if you have questions. If you do not support the mine speak out and have your voice heard.
