Developer resubmits bid for mine by Pechanga Band sacred site

A developer resubmitted an application for a controversial quarry mine opposed by the Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians in California.

The tribe has been fighting the Liberty Quarry mine, which would be located less than 500 miles from the reservation border. The battle appeared to be over when board of supervisors in Riverside County voted 3-2 against a permit for the project.

Granite Construction is now saying it wants to build a smaller operation. The city council in Temecula is going to court in hopes of blocking the revised project.
