Virtual Earth Month – Chance to Share Your Voice (Updated!)

April 8, 2020

Last month, an updated proposal to mine for titanium on 898 acres next to the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge was submitted to the Army Corps of Engineers for review. The Okefenokee is the largest blackwater swamp in North America and is the home to many of Georgia’s wildlife and plant species.

Update! U.S. Army Corps of Engineers both extended the comment deadline and scheduled a virtual public meeting.
The comment period deadline is now May 28, while the public meeting is scheduled for May 13.
