We do what we do because we love mining, liberty & freedom; and want to protect the uniquely American Heritage of Mining in this nation. However, we need your help . . . we can’t do it alone.
The Waldo Mining District needs the ammunition necessary to stay in the fight in the form of .50 cal. Dollars, and relies on your generous donations to help fund our efforts fighting for all of our rights to mine. 100% of all funds go to direct expenses such as court fees, attorney fees, postage, room and travel expenses. Not one penny goes to wages. Nada.
Currently, the WMD is involved in two separate important lawsuits in partnership with the Eastern Oregon Mining Association in the on-going 10+ year litigation against DEQ’s illegal suction dredge mining permit; and with the Galice Mining District in federal court against SB 838.
Both of these cases are in appeal, and we need $1,000’s more to see both through to the end.
WE MUST WIN BOTH OF THESE CASES
