Opposition soon arose from Whitsett and Atascosa County residents once they learned of the proposed facility at 657 FM Road 99 in Whitsett in northern Live Oak County. Two public meetings were held with the community and Zinc Resources representatives in February. At the meeting on Feb. 10, Zinc Resources CEO Ron Crittendon was asked by several residents if the company was still planning to locate to the area. Crittendon answered, “That’s the one question we’re going to have to wait right now on.”
Zinc Resources will seek authorization in another city.
