Bookmark This DNR Pledge On Tough Mining Standards

The President of the mining company planning to dig the largest open pit iron mine in the US right in the middle of the pristine Bad River watershed in Northern Wisconsin was a manager at a Spanish copper mine where a watershed was polluted.

A legal case in Spain over the pollution is continuing.

But no need to worry about the past being prologue, because the Wisconsin DNR says it's on the case:

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is aware of the investigation and "we will do a thorough review no matter the outcome of the case," DNR spokesman Bill Cosh said.

Lots of luck with the DNR investigating anything. DNR supported the mining bill which includes language to the effect that damage to the environment is necessary and expected!!!!!
