Canada-U.S. group sets meeting on mining

VIRGINIA, Minn. – A meeting on the impact of copper-nickel mining operations in Minnesota’s Iron Range has been set for March 15 in Virginia.

The event, called “The Impacts of Nonferrous Mining in the Lake Superior Basin,” is open to the public and free. It will be held from 12:30 to 5 p.m. in the Auditorium of the Mesabi Range Community and Technical College.

The meeting is hosted by Lake Superior Binational Forum, its third and final public meeting on the economic and environmental impact of mining on the Lake Superior basin.

Email the forum at binationalforum@northland.edu to suggest issues or speakers for consideration. A final agenda will be posted on the forum’s website, www.superiorforum.org, by the end of the year.

The Binational Forum is a group of concerned citizens that has official backing from the governments of Canada and the United States to discuss and develop environmental policy for the Lake Superior region. It has no regulatory or legal authority.
