Suit would block trucks hauling ore at NV mine

Opponents of open-pit mining on the edge of Virginia City, Nevada filed suit to stop trucks hauling gold and silver ore on a local mountain highway. "In addition to safety concerns, group leaders say the mining runs counter to the best interests of protecting the history of the Comstock in and around Virginia City ... Comstock Mining needs to use a mile-long portion of the highway ... while it works to resolve a dispute with the U.S. Bureau of Land Management over status of an off-highway haul road."
