Imperial Metals is planning two mining projects in Clayoquot Sound. Catface Mountain copper-molybdenum mine is a mountain-top removal scheme that must be stopped before it is submitted to the environmental review process. Fandora, a potential gold mine, would be at the head of Tranquil Valley, on Tla-o-qui-aht territory, for which the provincial government is currently reviewing an application for exploration.
Friends of Clayoquot Sound, along with allies Wilderness Committee, Tla-o-qui-aht First Nations, representatives of the Ahousaht First Nations, and Clayoquot Action, have organized a rally outside Imperial Metals’ AGM to show shareholders that mining in the Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Reserve is not wanted, and is not a sound business decision. We are cordially inviting all members of the Clayoquot communities to come help us make a difference; please help us spread the word!
FOCS has organized a bus to carry supporters to and from the rally. Thanks to sponsors Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, Wilderness Committee and a private donor, the trip will only cost supporters 20$.
