EARTHWORKS is a non-profit, non-partisan environmental organization dedicated to protecting communities and the environment from the adverse impacts of mineral development. Our national office, based in Washington D.C., provides support to citizens across the country and around the world. Our field offices in Arizona and Montana assist communities throughout the western United States concerned about the impact of mineral development in their backyards.

EARTHWORKS supports responsible mining policies and practices and recognizes that some mining companies seek to operate in a manner that protects our environment.

The Sierra Club is America's oldest, largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization. Inspired by nature, the Sierra Club s members including 14,000 in Arizona work together to protect our communities and the planet. The Sierra Club's mission is to explore, enjoy, and protect the wild places of the earth; to practice and promote the responsible use of the earth's ecosystems and resources; to educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environment; and to use all lawful means to carry out these objectives. The Sierra Club s Grand Canyon Chapter has been actively involved in protecting public lands in Arizona for more than 40 years.

We appreciate the opportunity to express our view in front of the Subcommittee about S. 3157, the Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act of 2008 (Oak Flat Land Exchange).
