Anti-Pollution Advocates Have Kennecott Utah Copper in Their Sights

A FIGHT IS BREWING -- BETWEEN KENNECOTT UTAH COPPER, AND THE ENVIRONMENTALIST GROUP, "UTAH MOMS FOR CLEAN AIR."

POLLUTION OPPONENTS ARE ARGUING, IN FEDERAL COURT, KENNECOTT IS VIOLATING CLEAN-AIR REGULATIONS, AT ITS OPEN PIT MINE, IN BINGHAM CANYON.

THEY CLAIM THE COPPER GIANT IS DIGGING UP MORE ORE THAN ALLOWED -- THROUGH A FEDERAL AGREEMENT -- AND STIRRING UP TOO MUCH DUST, IN THE PROCESS.

IF THEY PREVAIL, THE GROUPS WILL SEEK SANCTIONS...AND AN ORDER LIMITING MINE PRODUCTION.
