Trout Unlimited: Rare earth mine poses big risks

The Bitterroot chapter of Trout Unlimited, Montana Trout Unlimited, and national Trout Unlimited have invested in the Bitterroot Valley and its iconic wild trout fishery for decades. Those investments have included everything from ensuring Painted Rocks dam provides trout-healthy flows, advocating for public access to restoring tributary streams, and hiring a full-time project manager dedicated to this watershed.

So, it’s no surprise that they have serious concerns about a potential rare earth elements mine in the Sheep Creek tributary of the West Fork Bitterroot River.
