Save the Boundary Waters to Host Series of Screenings of New Mini- Documentary, “In Deep Water,” on Threat to the Wilderness from Risky Mining

Screenings will be followed by a panel discussion and question and answer period

ELY, MN–Today the Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters announced a series of screenings on the threat to the wilderness from sulfide-ore copper mining, most significantly from Chilean mining conglomerate Antofagasta’s Twin Metals project. Each screening will include a presentation of the mini-documentary, “In Deep Water,” panel discussion, and question and answer period. 

A Star Tribune/MPR poll released yesterday showed that by nearly 3 to 1 Minnesotans do not want mining near the Boundary Waters Wilderness. This tracks with other polling that has consistently shown over the years that Minnesotans oppose threats to America’s most visited Wilderness. Significantly, opposition did not change greatly across regions of the state. 

The screenings and conversations will help inform the public on the threat sulfide-ore copper mining poses to the Boundary Waters Wilderness.
