Secure our Supply Chains from Foreign Adversaries

America is at risk. For years, we have allowed mining to be pushed overseas and now we are paying the consequences. We are dependent on minerals from foreign countries, including our adversaries China and Russia, to produce the goods our lives depend on. 

Without minerals we cannot manufacture cellphones, computers, semiconductors, automobiles, ammunition and everything in between. 

Sadly, America has weakened our supply chains by not advancing responsible mining projects in our country. Right now, there are 17 minerals we are fully reliant on foreign countries to provide. 

Until our mineral supply chains are secure, America will always be vulnerable. 

Take antimony for example. There is no domestic supply for this mineral, despite its importance to our national security. Antimony is used munitions, flares, precision optics, and infrared sensors. We need this mineral to keep our troops and our country safe.   

You can help secure America’s mineral future. 

Sign the petition below and tell federal regulators it is time to source minerals here at home. Tell them to start with the Stibnite Gold Project in Idaho, which would provide a significant source of the antimony we need to keep the brave men and women who serve our country safe.

U.S. Forest Service, 

For years, we have allowed mining to be pushed overseas and now American supply chains are at risk. Without domestic sources of the minerals we need, American manufacturing and access to the goods we need for our technology, energy and defense industries is not secure. 

Right now, we have to rely on other countries to supply us with the minerals we need to produce semiconductors, cars, solar panels, storage batteries, prescription drugs and national defense systems. In fact, there are 17 minerals we are entirely dependent on foreign countries to provide – including antimony. 

Antimony is key to keeping our country and our military men and women safe. Sadly, today, China and Russia provide around 90% of America’s antimony. But it doesn’t have to be this way. 

I encourage the U.S. Forest Service to permit Perpetua Resources’ Stibnite Gold Project, so we can secure a domestic source of antimony and strengthen America’s supply chains. 

During the first six years of mining, the Stibnite Gold Project would provide enough antimony to satisfy 35 percent of our nation’s commercial antimony demand. It would also provide hundreds of well-paying jobs to hard-working Americans and inject millions of dollars into the economy.
