Water is worth more than Gold

Baja California Sur vehemently OPPOSES the Concordia Gold (Paredones Amarillos) open pit gold mine !

Cabo San Lucas Villas is uniting with Baja residents and urging everyone to assist Congresswoman Sonia Murillo Macias in passing an initiative to prohibit open pit gold mining in BCS. Once passed, the initiative would signify the denial of zoning permits for a proposed mining project of Concordia Gold  Co. in Sierra de la Laguna Biosphere and a triumph for the citizens who have joined forces to oppose the project.  Many who see the project as a direct threat to the water sources needed for tourism, organic farming, cattle, fishing, and other industries that employ over 70% of the Baja population.

Stop Concordia Gold from ruining the livelihood of an entire population and the beauty of our beloved home..
