The Impacts of Nonferrous Mining in the Lake Superior Basin: Overview and Updates

March 15, 2013 @ 12:30 pm - 5:30 pm

The Lake Superior Binational Forum is offering its third and final public meeting about the impacts of mining in the Lake Superior basin at this upcoming meeting in Virginia.

A full agenda will be posted soon.  The focus of the meeting will be on how nonferrous mining operations may impact the economies and environment of the Lake Superior basin, especially on the Minnesota Iron Range. Speakers representing different aspects of mining are currently being considered; however, the Forum welcomes public input about preferred topics and speakers.

Email the Forum at  binationalforum@northland.edu to let us know what issues you want to hear about or speakers who can advance the understanding of mining operations.

All Forum meetings are free and open to the public with no need to pre-register.

Members of the public are invited to an open public comment period starting at 4 p.m. on March 15 when anyone is welcome to express their comments about mining and other issues related to Lake Superior.
