The single biggest lie pushed on people since we moved off the gold standard. This campaign is full of mis-information and more than a few untruths about abandoned mines. Stories of bad air, and some deaths that never even happened. All in the name of begging for federal funding.  The fact is, with all the traffic that mines see, and the few accidents that occur, mining is one of the safest forms of recreation on public lands!
