Black Mountain KY in Danger...

The National Trust for Historic Preservation has just identified Black Mountain, KY as one of the nations most 11 endangered historic resources for 2011. It's very existence is threatened by the possible issuance of multiple surface and deep mining permits on and around the mountain.

The Kentucky Department of Natural Resources, Division of Mine Permits will decide whether to grant the permits. Highpointers wishing to help preserve Black Mountain should write and/or email the Division of Mine Permits requesting that they reject the permit applications.
