District Throws Down The Gaunlet To Local Enviro Groups
Responding to news reports that local miners were threatening the leadership of Klamath-Siskiyou Wildlands Center, Galice Mining District CEO, Rick Barclay, threw down the gauntlet to the enviros in question.
KTVL out of Medford reported that: "The Klamath Siskiyou Wildlands Center said it was dealing with some threats from miners. The non-profit said its recent involvement in support of state legislature capping the number of suction dredging permits given out, and putting restrictions on the time and place it can be done, led to distribution of a threatening flyer. (Galice Mining District CEO) Barclay said restrictions proposed by a state bill went against federal law, kept miners from making a living and fueled him to stay focused on his goal."
"We told them (the enviros) when they started all that foolishness that if they wanted to open up a war just keep on doing it, because we've had every plan of coming back and putting them out of business and that's what our stated goal is," said Barclay."
