Ha Tinh province has taken a firm stance against mining at Thach Khe Calling a halt to Thach Khe mine? Following the Ministry of Planning and Investment, the Ha Tinh People’s Committee expressed resolute opposition to mining operations at Thach Khe, Southeast Asia’s biggest iron ore mine, due to concerns over environmental pollution, high transportation costs, as well as uncertain iron ore sales. In a recent document submitted to the prime minister, the Ha Tinh People’s Committee outlined the reasoning behind its stance.

Alarmed by toxic coal ash seeping into Illinois’ only national scenic river, a conservation group Tuesday declared it one of the nation's most threatened waterways.Orange- and purple-hued muck often can be seen leaching from the banks of the Middle Fork of the Vermilion River as it meanders past a shuttered Dynegy Inc. coal plant near Oakwood, about 25 miles east of Urbana. The pollution problems led the nonprofit group American Rivers to list the stream as one of “America’s Most Endangered Rivers,” adding another voice to local and national efforts intended to pressure Dynegy’s new owners to clean up the site.Before Houston-based Dynegy closed the coal plant in 2011, more than 3.3 million cubic yards of coal ash had been dumped into pits next to the river — enough to fill the Empire State Building nearly 2½ times. Testing by Dynegy and the nonprofit Prairie Rivers Network shows the multicolored waste oozing into the water contains dangerous … [Read more...] about Illinois’ only National Scenic River named one of the most threatened waterways in U.S.
