Conservation Groups File Lawsuit To Protect Starved Rock State Park

Over the past few months we have worked tirelessly to help organize the substantial opposition to this mine. We have promoted every opportunity to get your voice heard.

On Wednesday, December 12, Sierra Club, Prairie Rivers Network (PRN), and Openlands filed a suit demanding judicial review of the Starved Rock Mining Permit recently approved to Mississippi Sand, LLC by IDNR’s Office of Mines and Minerals. You can find the joint press release for our complaint located on the Media Page of this site.

If you haven’t already, write Governor Quinn today! Tell him you oppose this mine!
