Environmentalists warned on Tuesday that a plan to dig a new copper mine in northern England would be the “biggest blow” to the environment for many decades, in light of plans to build a new mine in the same area.
The new mine would be the second copper mine ever planned in Britain, following the 2m sq km (1.3bn sq ft) Copper River mine, to be built in central Scotland by UK copper producer Glencore last year.
The plan for the $250 million Copper River mine to be the fifth largest in Britain, could see the first copper deposit in the area, which is near the confluence of the River Eels and the River Moray. Copper’s production potential lies far greater than for gold and silver mining.
The new coal-fired power plant planned by Glencore and the Ministry of Finance (MoF) for the Copper River site would result in the dumping of some 1,000 cubic metres (m3) of coal into the river a year—two times the current levels of discharge.
The new mine is likely to cause environmental devastation. The mining industry relies on coal to produce its copper, and since 1997, as many as half of all UK coal exports have taken place via the copper mines. It has also been reported that around 2m tonnes of coal is generated by the power pl인터넷 카지노ant each year in the Moray area, while the river itself gets more than one million tonnes of water daily to power Glencore’s coal-fired power plants in Scotland.
In fact, the new coal power plant is going to cause the immediate destruction of a river called the Copper and Moray—a river whose current flow has been linked to the environment for many centuries, thanks to its proximity to Glencore’s existing iron and steel plants near the British Isles and the coal trains which ship it around.
The MoF announced on Tuesday that it had given approval for the Copper River mine for development to begin in October. But on Wednesday it announced that it had reversed itself and approved plans for the mine a month later. The Ministry of Environment (MoE) is yet to formally approve the mines plan, but is expected to do so in mid-October. The Minister, Jo Joh더킹 카지노nson, said that it was necessary to “protect the river’s current flow”.
Environment Secretary Amber Rudd, who was in the MoF meeting, said:
