Gogebic Taconite holds meetings with concerned citizens

On Tuesday, Gogebic Taconite representatives will be traveling throughout Iron and Ashland Counties to speak one-on-one with citizens and address questions about the proposed iron ore mine. This is the third round of personalized sessions, according to a release from Gogebic.

“There has been a great response from the communities we visit,” said Bob Seitz, spokesman for Gogebic Taconite. “We’re looking forward to sharing the science behind our proposed project and answering questions for anyone who hasn’t had an opportunity.”  

The individualized format will continue in order to provide personalized attention for concerned citizens who may be uncomfortable with the public hearing format.

The times and locations for the one-on-one sessions are as follows: 7:30-8:45 a.m. at Bear Crossing in Glidden; 10-11:15 a.m. in the Vaughn Library in Ashland; 1:30-2:45 p.m. at the Penokee Deli in Mellen; 4-5:15 p.m. at the Gogebic Taconite Office in Hurley and from 6-7:15 p.m. at the Subway in Mercer.
