Fairplay is essentially a mining district, but people live here now and should have a say in what happens.

I’ve watched the TV show “Gold Rush” since its inception, and it’s fascinating to learn about placer gold mining.

But underneath I’m appalled by the environmental destruction. Reclamation of new mining sites near the town should be required. Please don’t let a TV show destroy our environment.
