  • Operations to resume at Stibnite Mining District

- The Stibnite Mining District is loaded with gold, silver, tungsten and antimony. The region had been heavily mined for decades and just as heavily polluted. Operations stopped in 1997 and 12 years later, Midas Gold acquired the site and began to look at ways to resume mining operations in the area. The mining firm says it is committed to responsible and sustainable mining practices but conservationists are wary. Idaho Matters looks at new efforts to harvest minerals at the Stibnite Mining District.
