Contact Attorney General Josh Stein and Governor Cooper TODAY!
Tell then NOT to agree to the settlement with Wake Stone.

We’ve been blindsided! The Interim Director for DEQ-Mining, Toby Vincent, and Wake Stone reached a closed-door Settlement agreement that reverses the previous Director’s Mining Permit Denial.

HOWEVER, Attorney General Josh Stein must approve the Settlement to be effective. That is where YOU can help.

Please contact Attorney General Josh Stein and Governor Roy Cooper and ask the following of the AG:

  • Do NOT approve the Settlement Agreement between an Interim Director in DEQ and Wake Stone for a new mining pit on the Odd Fellows Tract
  • Do NOT approve the first private rock mine on public lands in NC with devastating damage to Umstead State Park
  • Do NOT Settle
  • Do NOT agree to use half of a million dollars of tax payers money to pay for a private mining company to destroy our public lands
  • Fight for the Mining Permit Denial
  • Fight for Sunset Clause to be restored
  • Fight for our public lands to be protected!
  • Fight for William B. Umstead State Park!
  • PLEASE, do ALL of these NOW:
