IDNR grants permit for an open pit mine
Starved Rock advocates vow to keep fighting plan that needs OK of IEPA
UTICA, Ill. — The Illinois Department of Natural Resources Office of Mines and Minerals has given the go-ahead to a controversial open pit mine next to Starved Rock State Park in La Salle County, despite objections from local residents and thousands of others from across Illinois.
“Starved Rock is one of Illinois’ most special places, and we are disappointed that IDNR is approving a project that puts it at risk,” said Jack Darin, director of the Illinois Chapter of the Sierra Club.
