WE ARE . . .
The small town of Silver City—population 180—nestles among the ravines and hillsides along Gold Canyon in northwestern Nevada. It is 9 miles from Carson City, and a short way down State Route 342 from Virginia City. Silver City is a quiet, safe place to live and raise a family. It is also a town accustomed to standing up for itself. Our strength lies in our community—and our community is under assault.
Our town has been targeted for development of an open pit gold mine. The proposed mine would be located in a long-standing residential area within a few hundred feet of nearby homes. The blasting, excavating, earth moving and noise, dust, and pollution inherent to open pit mining would destroy our town as we know it.
Our intention is to stop this from happening. We are a community fighting for our rights, defending against greed and corruption, and taking a stand for community values everywhere.
