Mining company submits replacement application

Gogebic Taconite LLC withdrew their May 9 exploration license application last Thursday and submitted a replacement application to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

According to Ann Coakley, DNR’s Waste and Materials Management director, the company is now proposing to drill only eight exploration borings rather than the 13 they had originally proposed in their first application.

Company officials indicated they removed five of the original 13 boreholes to gather additional information needed to appropriately ad­dress storm water issues in accordance with applicable regulations.
