Potential Metallic Mining Development in Northern

2003-3-26  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. The Crandon deposit is presently being evaluated for the required environmental impact analyses and the mining permit and other related

Cumulative Impacts of Metallic Mining Wisconsin DNR

2003-3-26  Over the past twenty-five years of metallic mineral exploration in northern Wisconsin, four orebodies (areas of mineralization that may be economically feasible to mine) have been located and defined. One, the Flambeau Mine near Ladysmith has been successfully reclaimed. Reclamation of the pit began in early 1997 and was completed in late 1998.

Past and potential ferrous (iron) mining projects in Wisconsin

2021-10-23  Those early mining activities concentrated on extracting naturally high-grade hematitic ore until those bodies were largely exhausted by the 1960s. As there is still a large quantity of taconitic-grade iron ore available in the western Gogebic deposit, it is the primary site of contemporary iron mining speculation in Wisconsin.

Metallic Sulfide Mining Sierra Club

2021-9-4  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.

Overview of metallic mining in Wisconsin Wisconsin DNR

2012-9-18  Metallic mining has occurred in Wisconsin since the time of the Copper Culture about 2,000-5,000 years ago. Mining for metals such as copper, lead, iron and zinc shaped the history of several regions of Wisconsin and played a major role in the development of Wisconsin as a state. While mining can be an economic boon for communities and states

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
