Save Indian Pass and the “Trail of Dreams” from a proposed Cyanide Heap Leach Gold Mine
Support the Quechan Tribe’s campaign to stop KORE Mining from getting permits for a cyanide heap leach gold mine at Indian Pass in the Sonoran Desert which would desecrate sacred Indigenous land and cause severe environmental pollution and destruction.
Twenty-five years ago, the Quechan Tribe successfully fought off and defeated plans by Glamis Gold to get permits for a gold mine on sacred and environmentally sensitive land at Indian Pass. Today, Indian Pass is again being targeted for its gold. KORE Mining wants to extract 1.2 million ounces of gold from this culturally significant land. They may use cyanide heap leaching, a process that would contaminate the land and wildlife. According to the Quechan, Indian Pass is part of the “Trail of Dreams” and has profound cultural significance.
