On Thursday, March 24, 2022, Friends of the Inyo hosted a virtual evening presentation with Pete Dronkers, author of “Conglomerate Mesa Mineral Exploration: Potential Future Mining Scenarios and Impacts”. The report is an in-depth analysis of what a large-scale gold mining operation could look like at Conglomerate Mesa. It has been peer-reviewed and examines the geology of the region to better characterize the size and scope of a future mine, as well as its potential long-term environmental liabilities, by comparing its geology to similar existing mines in Nevada. Pete Dronkers answered questions from participants. In case you missed it, watch the virtual event here.
