FSPW clarifies position on collaboration and multiple use in the Scotchmans

Revett Minerals announces future conservation easement plans for Troy Mine.

In the November 22 edition of the Sanders County Ledger, an article beginning on page 13 erroneously stated that Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness supported Revett Mineral’s proposed mine in Rock Creek at the south end of the Cabinet Mountains Wilderness. In the November 29 issue, on the back page of the second section, the Ledger printed a letter to the editor clarifying the FSPW position on Rock Creek. Partly because of the misinformation in the November 22 Ledger, FSPW board and staff feel it is an important and appropriate time to explain the FSPW position on issues relating to collaboration and multiple use in and around the Scotchman Peaks.  Read about this in detail here.
