Show your support and help save Kipawa Lake! Kipawa Lake, a world renowned tourist destination and pristine ecosystem is currently at risk. A junior mining company has plans to open a toxic open pit rare earth mine on Kipawa's shores. This type of mining has additional risks due to the presence of radioactive substances (Thorium and Uranium) and the use of strong acids and bases in the processing of the ore. Rare earth mining is still in its infancy and has yet to be carried out in a safe manner. The Kipawa Lake Preservation Society was formed in hopes of raising awareness and empowering residents and lake users to come together to protect this area from mining and other threats. Funds raised from shirt sales will go to the Kipawa Lake Preservation Society and will be used for protective initiatives to ensure the long term health of the Kipawa watershed.
