Yellowstone Gateway Business Coalition – Protecting our local economy from two proposed gold mines in Paradise Valley

Businesses and landowners throughout Paradise Valley, Gardiner and Livingston have joined together to protect our existing local economy from two proposed gold mines on the doorstep of Yellowstone National Park. Yellowstone Gateway Business Coalition is a pro-business, pro-property rights group representing thousands of hardworking employees and their families. While not anti-mining, we recognize not all mining is created equal. Our gateway communities — surrounding Yellowstone — are no place for sulfide gold mines.

For us, this is NOT a political issue. It’s a business issue. It’s a financial issue. It’s a community issue. It’s a conservation issue. It’s a quality-of-life issue.
