Adirondack Mining Company Seeks Land Swap With State
NYCO minerals, a mining company in the Adirondacks, wants to do a land swap with the state to gain access to a decade’s worth of the mineral wollastonite. It’s a move NYCO says will keep a hundred workers on the job for years to come. But the deal will require the approval of voter statewide on election day because the land involved in the exchange lies within the state forest preserve. Supporters say the mine provides high-paying jobs in a region where there are few. But opponents don’t see a public need. To learn more visit nycominerals.com or adirondackwild.org.
