AFTER APACHE FILE LAWSUIT AND PLACE LIEN ON OAK FLAT, FEDERAL JUDGE ORDERS INJUNCTION HEARING JANUARY 27 AND FOREST SERVICE DELAYS LAND TRANSFER FOR 55 DAYS

OAK FLAT, Ariz. - Apache Stronghold, on behalf of traditional Apache religious and cultural leaders, placed a lien on Oak Flat on Wednesday, January 13, with the Pinal County Recorder's Office.  The lien prevents the planned transfer of Oak Flat, or Chi'chil Bildagoteel, to a foreign mining company until the recently filed ongoing Apache Stronghold lawsuit is finalized.
