Hardly a day goes by without a letter bashing KGHM with uninformed opinions and rumours describing the horrors that will befall Kamloopsians if the mine proposal goes forward.
With a little effort, it will be found that the company has been in existence for 45 years. It was included in a list of the 80 worst polluters in Poland but has cleaned up its act and was removed from this list more than 10 years ago.
It is a recognized leader and has received several awards for its efforts in ecological research and practices. Full technical information on its current operations is available on its website.
Let’s all find out for ourselves some facts about this company and its proposed mine rather than consider uninformed opinion of others.
