Where's CuMo?

You can go on a fantastic Google Earth tour of the CuMo Project and see where it is in the Boise River watershed.

Where's CuMo?

CuMo Project Google Earth flyover

To get a visual image of where the CuMo Mine is in the Boise River watershed, go on a fantastic Google Earth tour of the CuMo Project, courtesy of Gary Grimm with Mountain Visions.

It takes a few seconds to load but is a great overview of both the CuMo Project and Thompson Creek Mine, an existing open-pit molybdenum mine.  

As you fly over the Thompson Creek Mine, remember that Mosquito Gold is estimating that CuMo could be five times bigger. And Thompson Creek has serious water quality issues. And CuMo would be in the headwaters of the Boise River.  

If you haven’t already done so,,  submit your comments on this project by Sept 1.

Bottom line: It’s not too early to oppose the project. It’s better (and easier) to stop pollution before it starts rather than after there’s a mess.
