Lapwai, Idaho – Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) and U.S. Forest Service (“USFS”) announced a settlement agreement with Midas Gold despite strong opposition from the Nez Perce Tribe and numerous requests that the agencies allow pre-decisional public comment and evaluation by the incoming Biden Administration. In exchange for agreeing to perform very limited cleanup activities at the Site, Midas Gold received through this settlement agreement—known as an Administrative Settlement and Order on Consent—a glide path toward constructing its proposed, huge, open-pit gold mine at the historical Stibnite Mine Site (“Site”). The Tribe is deeply disappointed by this political decision.

King received a doctorate degree in theology and in 1955 helped organize the first major protest of the African American civil rights movement: the successful Montgomery Bus Boycott. Influenced by Mohandas Gandhi, he advocated civil disobedience and nonviolent resistance to segregation in the South. The peaceful protests he led throughout the American South were often met with violence, but King and his followers persisted, and the movement gained momentum.
