Dear Editor,

This is in reference to Aquila Resources transfer to Gold Resources Organization.

Although Aquila Resources has decided to take this opportunity to offer themselves to Gold Resources, this does not change the complexion of the threat to the Menominee River.

Aquila is in financial trouble with their stock price as low as less than a nickel per share. This is simply a move to sidestep bankruptcy.

The Coalition to SAVE the Menominee River and their affiliates continue to stand strong with our staff of attorneys to protect this large waterway to the Great Lakes.

Be assured, that this battle has gone on for 20 years and will continue to go on until these speculative mining organizations give up on ever getting close to the Menominee River.
