By Aaron Humes: As a matter of policy, at its meeting this week Cabinet affirmed that “no surface mining (strip, open put, mountain top) or any other type of mining activity in the Gales Point Manatee area shall be permitted…”

The Executive said this is “having regard to the surrounding communities’ concerns and given the threats and damages it may cause to the environment, including its extensive and sensitive biodiversity, watershed and other immense ecological systems.”

This would appear to put to rest to plans by Vulcan Mining to mine the White Ridge Farms area along the Coastal Road, which it has purchased with the intent of conducting such operations.

While several prominent Cabinet members and members of the community have expressed objections, Prime Minister John Briceno had not ruled out listening to the Vulcan proposal through the usual process.
