Poll: Montana in Favor of Repealing Anti-Mining Initiative
May 2003 by StaffCanyon Resources Corporation announced results of a recent Montana poll and events in the Montana Legislative session related to citizen efforts to modify or overturn the anti-mining initiative (I-137) passed in 1998 that bans the use of cyanide in open-pit gold and silver mining.

What a month! It seemed as if one headline after another dwelled on one, and only one subject, that of the environmentalists’ concern over “global warming.” Politicians changed directions, mass demonstrations were held, Al Gore moved to the top of the media hit parade, and lawmakers were warming up to the task of revolutionizing our lives with torrents of new laws, regulations and policies.
As part of the Hope-Sunrise Mining District, mining activity was at a frenzy in the area in 1902, when miners like Mr. S.W. Weible worked the gold rich gravels of Canyon Creek...and recovered $7,000 in gold dust.
