Mining Gold Again in Nevada County? 


Join Nevada County leaders and conservation activists as they discuss the proposed reopening of Idaho Maryland Mine and offer actions you can take now to help prevent it. This proposal by a foreign corporation is the topic of the film, Rise Beyond Gold, which premiers in the "Local Love" film session. This workshop explores the impacts the community would face if Nevada County allows the mine to open. It offers insights from trusted community leaders, highlights ways to stay informed, and includes tips for influencing decision makers. Pascale Fusshoeller, esteemed editor of YubaNet and 21-year veteran of the Nevada County news scene, will moderate the panel featuring:

Jennifer Ekstrom - Filmmaker, Rise Beyond Gold

Ralph Silberstein - Community Environmental Advocates Foundation

Mike Shea - Impacted Property Owner from Mine

Shelly Covert - Secretary, Community Outreach, and Spokesperson, Nevada City Rancheria Nisenan Tribal Council

Izzy Martin - CEO, The Sierra Fund
