Okefenokee Swamp threatened by mining operations

by The 100 Companies

Georgia is blessed with two tremendous waterways – The Chattahoochee River and the Okefenokee Swamp. For years, I’ve taken friends into the swamp on 3-4 day canoe excursions. Think car-camping convenience, but on the water.

Once you’ve experienced this, you’ll understand my feeling that “this is truly God’s country.” Black tannic waters, cattails and lily pads, white egrets with expansive wingspans and, of course, more alligators than you can count. Their red glowing eyes at nightfall are quite spectacular!

The Okefenokee Swamp is now threatened by mining operations.

Please join me in engaging local representatives and supporting The Okefenokee Protection Alliance.

Can you direct me to scientific studies that support the damage that would occur if the mine is allowed. I’m just curious since there has been mining up and down trailridge for over 50 years and surely there should be evidence of hydrological impact occurring somewhere on the ridge. I’ve attended some meetings on this issue but would like to review the studies if they are available.
