Environmentalists applaud Minister’s move to prevent mine in new park as an important first step

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA ? Environmentalists today applauded the Minister of Natural Resource?s decision to reject an application for a mine in Mellon Lake Conservation Reserve. The Minister?s decision is viewed as an important first step to keep mines out of protected areas. The Mellon Lake reserve was one of 378 new protected areas established by the provincial government in March 1999. Over half of the new protected areas established under Ontario?s Living Legacy are similarly threatened.
