GTac's proposal: Not your grandparents' mine

"Take a moment to think about Northern Wisconsin’s Penokee Hills. Picture the vast swath of forested ridges, the shady glens where pristine water flows from headwaters springs," WNPJ member Eric Hansen writes for Milwaukee Public Media.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel also carried a version of Hansen's column.

GTac's proposed open-pit iron mine would not be "a mine our grandparents would recognize, a minor incision. This is the new style mining -- a mountaintop removal mine project that would turn a unique part of Northern Wisconsin into a West Virginia-like Land of Sorrow."

On Tuesday, February 12 at 5 pm, Hansen will speak with Mike Wiggins, Chair of the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Ojibwe, at Milwaukee's Urban Ecology Center.  Click here for event details.
