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

Overview of metallic mining in Wisconsin Wisconsin DNR

2021-11-15  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 ...

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.

Iron Mining in Wisconsin Wisconsin Historical Society

The major iron mining area from the mid-1880s to the mid-1960s was the Gogebic Iron Range, which extends for 80 miles from Lake Gogebic in Michigan to Lake Namekagon in Wisconsin. Forty-five of the 70.7 million tons of ore produced from the Gogebic Iron Range in Wisconsin came from the Cary Mine near Hurley and the Montreal Mine at Montreal.

Wisconsin Geological Natural History Survey » Silver

Formula: Ag Isometric Description: Native silver is found in hydrothermal veins or, more rarely, as a supergene mineral. It is associated with gold, and a variety of sulfides such as galena, pyrite and acanthite. Major silver mineralization is found with native copper in nearby Michigan at the White Pine Mine and further north in the Keweenaw Peninsula.

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 ...
