Tribes: New evidence proves massacre was at Nevada mine site

Washington, Oct 6 (Prensa Latina) Tribal lawyers are asking a US judge in Nevada to reconsider her earlier refusal to block digging at a proposed lithium mine close to the Oregon line where they say newly uncovered evidence proves it was the sacred site of a massacre of dozens of Native Americans in 1865.

Nevada Lithium Corp.´s construction is scheduled to begin earlier next year at what would be the largest lithium mine in the nation and the biggest open pit lithium mine in the world.

Judge Miranda Du says she will hold a full evidentiary hearing on the merits of the case before any construction begins about 230 miles (370 kilometers) northeast of Reno.

But in recent months she has denied requests by environmentalists and tribes to prevent the Bureau of Land Management in the meantime from digging trenches for an archaeological survey that Lithium Nevada must complete before moving forward.
