Potential Metallic Mining Development in Northern Wisconsin

Potential Metallic Mining Development in Northern Wisconsin The Flambeau Mine extracted about 1000 tons per day of copper-rich ore. Reclamation of the pit began in early 1997 and was completed in late 1998.

Metallic Sulfide Mining Sierra Club

Wisconsin has only hosted one “modern” metallic sulfide mine, the Flambeau mine near Ladysmith. While the mining industry envisioned a major northern Wisconsin mining “district” comprised of multiple operations in the 1980s, those bold predictions proved false, with only the flawed Flambeau mine permitted to date.

Wisconsin-Mines Mining Artifacts

Lead ore was the first metal ore mined in Wisconsin, followed by zinc and iron. Although southwestern Wisconsin is best known today for its rich farmlands, place names such as Mineral Point, Hardscrabble, New Diggings, Black Jack and Lead Mine evoke an earlier time when local mines produced much of the nation's lead. In the early nineteenth century, Wisconsin lead mining was

Mining in Northern Wisconsin Wisconsin Historical Society

Mining in northern Wisconsin served a different purpose than the agricultural development in the southern part of the state. Northern settlement was shaped for the benefit of people outside Wisconsin. Investors from Eastern cities hoped to make a quick fortune through mining.

Interest in mining surges in northern Wisconsin Science

16/08/2011· Tom Evans, with the Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey, said the state's major ore deposits are well known throughout the mining community. He added that part of the appeal here is that much of the exploratory work has already been done on the big deposits. A number of mining companies conducted test drilling in the 1970s and 1980s when metal prices also were high.

What is Sulfide Mining? Mining Action Group

Metallic sulfide mining (aka hard rock mining) is the practice of extracting metals such as nickel, gold and copper from a sulfide-rich ore body. Sulfides are a geologic byproduct of mining in this area, and by exposing sulfides to the air and water in our atmosphere, sulfuric acid can be created — threatening to poison the nearby water, environment, and communities.
