The good news is Senators Wyden and Merkley of Oregon and Representatives DeFazio of Oregon and Huffman of California have introduced legislation to permanently protect these public lands from mining through the Southwest Oregon Watershed and Salmon Protection Act of 2015. If enacted, the bill will put a “mineral withdrawal” in place, meaning that new mining activities would no longer take place at Baldface Creek and the North Fork Smith Watershed. The bill also protects Rough and Ready Creek, Hunter Creek, the headwaters of the Pistol River and the Chetco from mining activities.

We all need to get behind this and push with everything we've got! Keep the pressure on from every direction and never let up! The stakes are too high.
