Opponents of Cordova Mine Push Letter Campaign

By  | 

CORDOVA, Ala. (AP) -- Opponents of a proposed new coal strip mine in Cordova are urging citizens to join them in writing letters to state regulators.

Reports say citizens and student activists were gathering Saturday at nearby Dovertown Freewill Baptist Church. They were urging residents to show up and write letters opposing the mine project to be sent to the Alabama Surface Mining Commission.

The Black Warrior Riverkeeper environmental group has filed a petition seeking to designate some areas of the Black Warrior River's Mulberry fork as unsuitable for mining.
