Philip Ramsey, Ph.D. & Sheep Creek Mine

November 27, 2023 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Our weekly Stand Together for Freedom meeting will focus on the risks of the Sheep Creek Mine proposed by a Canadian company in headwaters of the Bitterroot river. Our featured speaker, Philip W. Ramsey, Ph.D., has presented recently to the Bitterroot Audobon Society and the Hamilton City Council. This mine threatens the safety of our water, air, and property values.

Here’s more about the issue:

US Critical Metals, a Canadian mine development company, is exploring rare earth element deposits in the headwaters of the Bitterroot River. Please join Philip W. Ramsey, Ph.D. to learn about and discuss how a headwater mine will affect our river and the valley. This program aims to provide an objective, non-political overview of rare earth element mining, including its environmental impacts. Specific talking points include how hard rock mining affects ecosystems and how rare earth element mines operate. The presentation will be about 45 minutes long followed by discussion of audience generated topics.

Dr. Ramsey earned his Ph.D. working in the Clark Fork Superfund site, developing methods to quantify the damage caused by mines in the river’s headwaters. As a scientist with many years of experience working in a contaminated ecosystem Dr. Ramsey has firsthand knowledge of the risks associated with mining activities.
