Lawsuit filed over proposed mine site near Okefenokee

by The 100 Companies

Almost 600 acres near the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge have been selected as a proposed site for a titanium dioxide mine to be built by Twin Pines Minerals. Environmental groups are not happy as they say the mine will threaten the health of the Okefenokee Swamp.

Four organizations – the National Wildlife Refuge Association, National Parks Conservation Association, Defenders of Wildlife and the Center for Biological Diversity – are represented by the Southern Environmental Law Center in a suit against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for its decision to remove Clean Water Act protections for the swamp this past summer.
