Rise Gold plans on dewatering the Idaho-Maryland mine
of millions of gallons of toxic water, toxify the county aquifer,

a mine that would wreak havoc on the community;
a mine that is proposed to operate 24x7 for 80-years.
This video covers the first 2020 community protest against the mine

& that they will not trade water, e.g., lose their wells — for gold.
Other mine disasters serve as lessons learned & a forewarning
for potentially an identical situation with the Rise Gold owned
Idaho-Maryland Mine in Grass Valley.
