New America Media reported that although Ucore (CVE:UCU) has assured the community that the planned rare earth mine at Bokan Mountain will not harm the environment, environmental groups are not convinced.
As quoted in the New America Media report:
The mine will be underground, says Collison, with Ucore planning to re-inject the acidic tailings, or toxic byproducts, back into the mountain with cement. “We’ll be the first mine I’ve ever heard about [that] when it closes, there’ll be no tailings whatsoever,” he says.
