Zinke Joins Firm Seeking To Mine Gold on Public Land

"BILLINGS, Mont. — Former U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is quickly parlaying his time in President Donald Trump’s cabinet into a lucrative private career.

He’s landed a more than $100,000-a-year post at a Nevada mining company and is pursuing involvement in natural gas exports that have surged under Trump, Zinke told The Associated Press Tuesday.

The rapid transition from the highest levels of the executive branch to the corporate boardroom is raising questions about possible conflicts of interest."
