US Oil Sands is beginning its tar sands strip mining operations at PR Springs, Utah. This is the proposed first site of tar sands mining in the USA. Utah Tar Sands Resistance was there on October 14, 2012 as part of a campaign to prevent further destruction. This is a few of us hiking there by back-country routes. This type of mining is senseless and has destroyed an area the size of Florida in Alberta, Canada. Help Utah Tar Sands Resistance to prevent US Oil Sands from getting a permit to mine tar sands in Utah.
