Maxwell's report was published by the Northwest Mining Association (NWMA). The NWMA is a 118 year old non-profit, non-partisan trade association. The NWMA focuses on hardrock mineral exploration processes including: prospecting, exploring, mining, and reclamation closure activities on BLM and USFS lands, and private and state lands in the west.
The NWMA has retained Maxwell, who is a biologist in addition to being trained in environmental law, to conduct further review of the NTT Report. She graduated with her Master of Resources Law Studies degree in December of 2012. Maxwell said, "The program [Environmental and Natural Resources Law and Policy Program] really did prepare me for the work I am doing now and I am very grateful for that."
Congratulations to Maxwell on her great work! We wish her all the best in her future endeavors!
