Strip mine proposed next to Okefenokee NWR

An Alabama company is planning to strip mine for titanium and other heavy minerals in an area of Charlton County, Ga., bordering the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, an idea that the DuPont Co. abandoned in the late 1990s after government and public outcry against it.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers posted a joint public notice with the state of Georgia on July 12 indicating it had received a Clean Water Act permit application from Birmingham, Alabama-based Twin Pines Minerals. The corps is asking for public comments on the permit.
