A giant foreign-owned mining company thinks it’s an ideal spot to establish an open-pit copper mine! With the clock ticking on a decision, Gerri interviews an attorney who critiques the proposed mine and explains what could happen next; she also talks with an investigative journalist who traveled the world to get the scoop on copper mines – and the environmental and economic legacy they leave behind.
