More asbestos-like fibers found at proposed mine site

Email

Northland College Geoscience Professor Tom Fitz has found four more areas with asbestos-like fibers in the Penokee Hills.

Fitz initially found fibers a week ago in an old U.S. Steel rock sampling site in Ashland County. On Sunday, he found four more places within a third of a mile from the sampling site with grunerite rock, all in Ashland County. Grunerite contains asbestos-form fibers.
