Haaland asks GA governor to reject mine near Okefenokee NWR

U.S. Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland is urging Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp to deny state permits for a proposed titanium dioxide mine near the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge.

“I strongly recommend that the State of Georgia not move ahead with approval for this proposed mine in order to ensure that the swamp and refuge are appropriately protected, consistent with all appropriate legal processes,” Haaland wrote in a Nov. 22 letter obtained by The Current.
