I'll confess, I didn't realize until recently that "Maroon" originated from "marooned", as in being stranded on an island. I thought they wore maroon colored clothing, or had a maroon colored flag.

The lush area is home to Jamaica's largest remaining rainforest, endemic species found nowhere else on the island or in the world, and 40 percent of Jamaica's fresh drinking water.

So glad the Jamaican government is thinking of its mining companies and not the citizens who needs clean drinking water to live.

What's next, mining the Moon of Endor? Is no one thinking of the Ewoks!? They need a place to live too.

Leave Ewoks alone!!!

No snark, I hope they save the rainforest. There are better places to dig bauxite, and better ways for Jamaica to develop.

Sounds like it would cause some major miner problems.

Maroon the color is from French, marron.

Maroon the mascot is from cimarrones, escaped slaves who banded together and fought for their freedom.

Maroon the verb comes from the slave based noun, leaving them in the wild like the fugitive slaves.

There must be enough ore to make several hundred dollars worth of beer cans under all that useless overburden.

"The mining itself strips the soil"

They can't strip the topsoil, set it aside, then put it back on top after they're done?
Although that might only work for farmland. Ain't gonna quickly restore the rainforest.

Locals interfering with our plans to mine bauxite? Penultimo thinks we should use the army to crush them.
