Let's get some straight answers


February 7, 2019

I’m concerned as to what can happen as a result of the new mine. What are the possible environmental impacts? Could the PR geologist(s) give us (the general public) a simple chemistry lesson on the core sample compounds and what will be done to minimize acidification and toxic chemical release. Perhaps a best-case scenario and worst-case scenario. And describe how ground water and streams will be monitored. The other concern is the changes that will occur in the community when the economics change. Will our educational system maintain its excellence? Will the crime rate remain low? Will drug and alcohol use increase? Will rent rates escalate? I hope all of these possibilities are considered and discussed by the community.
