Supreme Court on gold mine dumping

The Supreme Court on June 22, 2009, upheld a federal permit to dump waste from an Alaskan gold mine into a nearby lake, even though all its fish would be killed. Environmentalists feared the ruling could weaken protection of other lakes, streams and waterways from mining waste. The gold mine is owned by Coeur d’Alene Mines Co.
