DNR receives exploratory drilling application from Gogebic Taconite

The Department of Natural Resources has received an exploration license application from Gogebic Taconite, LLC, for activities related to the Penokee/Gogebic deposit located in Ashland and Iron counties.

The company is proposing to drill 15 exploratory drill holes at the site. 

Gogebic Taconite had applied for and received an exploration license in the spring of 2013, and drilled eight exploration drill holes last summer. 

According to Ann Coakley, DNR Waste and Materials Management Program director, the agency will review and make a decision regarding the application within 10 business days, as required under the state’s iron mining law.

The application is available for viewing on DNR’s web page about the project. The agency has also created a list-serve for anyone interested in receiving updates about the project.

The Penokee/Gogebic deposit is generally defined as the 21-mile western end of the 60-mile long Gogebic Iron Range, which stretches east to west from Lake Gogebic, Michigan, to Mineral Lake, Wisconsin.
