When the copper is gone, our children will get the pit 12.4.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
“Restoration is our obligation to future generations.” —Carolyn Raffensperger, Principles of Perpetual Care Most of us alive today will witness the final days of the deepest open pit copper mine in the world. The world, in fact, only has around 25 years left of recoverable copper. Kennecott Copper Mine is currently working to prolong its 2019 end-date by expanding. The expansion will increase production 32 percent. However, the expansion will only extend the mine’s life to 2029 . Kennecott...

Feds reach $5.15B settlement over uranium mining cleanup 4.4.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Flagstaff, Ariz. • For decades, uranium ore was mined from the Lukachukai Mountains of northeastern Arizona, providing Navajos with much-needed employment but leaving behind a legacy of death and disease on the reservation. Uranium waste was thrown over the mountainside and carried by rain across the remote but scenic land used by hikers, anglers, medicine men and Navajo shepherds. The roughly 50 mine sites were eventually abandoned without cleaning up the contaminated waste. The Navajo Nation n...

Op-ed: A year after Bingham slide, an ode of thanks to copper 29.3.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
By Dan McGraw April 10 marks the first anniversary of the landslide in the Bingham Canyon copper mine, the largest spontaneous landslide on the continent and the first known to have created mini-earthquakes. Accelerating micro-motions detected in advance allowed evacuation so no one was killed, injured, or even frightened during the slide, although there were many struck dumb. Perhaps it’s time to break the silence and ask what did it all mean? Or more broadly, what does copper mean? Since c...

Tom Ross: Early homesteaders were Yampa Valley's 1st locavores 29.3.2014 Steamboat Pilot
It comes as no surprise that the earliest locavores in the Yampa Valley were the pioneers who filed for a 160-acre homestead and paid the federal government $1.25 per acre. If those folks didn’t eat locally produced food, they didn’t eat. But you might be surprised at the lengths they sometimes went to in order to survive on the food they either raised, grew or hunted. Take eggs for example. Diane Holly, a member of the board of the Community Agriculture Alliance, told an audience at the Tread of Pioneers Museum on Friday that her grandparents, Albert and Minnie Hitchens, kept laying hens and relied on their eggs not only for food but a steady trickle of cash. That modest cash flow helped them to go to the store in MacGregor (the now defunct town that was just west of present day Milner) to trade a case of eggs for some of those staples they couldn’t produce themselves. The Hitchens’ flock of hens stopped laying eggs every winter and in addition to missing the cash flow, the family resorted ...

Millard County salt dome to begin storing liquid fuels 27.3.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Caverns hollowed out in a Millard County salt dome will begin storing propane and butane next month, potentially opening new market opportunities for Utah’s natural gas industry, which has been hobbled by low commodity prices. State regulators on Wednesday approved liquid-fuel storage operations at the Magnum Gas Storage Project. The project has been in the works for nearly six years while Magnum has used solution mining to carve out 2-million-barrel caverns in a two-mile-wide salt deposit, com...

Editorial: Bishop’s attack on Antiquities Act is a bad idea 27.3.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
“Leave it as it is. You cannot improve upon it; not a bit. What you can do is to keep it for your children, your children’s children, and for all who come after you.” — President Theodore Roosevelt, designating the Grand Canyon National Monument, 1908 Utah’s Rep. Rob Bishop has it absolutely backwards. The time for a public review of the future of a piece of public land is before it is forever destroyed, not before it is set aside. His bill, H.R. 1459, which the House debated and, predictabl...
