Titanium Drilling in the Okefenokee Swamp
A mining company has proposed to drill for titanium near the Okefenokee Swamp and National Wildlife Refuge. Wetlands are a vital natural resource. They filter water for drinking and irrigation. They mitigate the effects of extreme weather events, including hurricanes.
The drilling permit raises red flags in that is unclear on the environmental impact, the proposed mitigations are not based on scientific evidence, and the true size and scale of the mine is unknown.
Take Action: Write the Army Corps of Engineers. We recommend they deny the permit, require more transparent information, and enable an extended public comment period. [email protected] Deadline is Apr 13
