Gogebic Taconite is expected to conduct test drilling on the site of its proposed iron ore mine in Northwestern Wisconsin by the end of April, a state regulator and the company said this week.


The drilling would be the first work in the field by the company after state mining legislation was signed into law earlier this month.

The $1.5 billion iron ore mine would be located over a four-mile area of Ashland and Iron counties.
