Under the Surface: A Geologist's Take on Sulfide Mining Near the BWCAW
Tuesday, May 20, 6 p.m. Doors open, 7 p.m. Program begins
Bryant Lake Bowl, Cost $5-$12. Tickets available at the door or available
online. Call (612) 825-8949 for reservations.

Sulfide mining=97extracting copper, nickel, and other metals from sulfide
ores, is coming to northeastern Minnesota, but environmental groups warn
that the risks are much different from Minnesota=92s traditional iron ore
mining. Several companies are currently exploring mineral deposits,
developing mine proposals, and working through the environmental review
process in areas along the southern edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area
Wilderness (BWCAW), and new advances in technology are promising to make
sulfide mining a hot-button topic this legislative session.

We know where to go to hear what environmentalists and mining companies
have to say, but what about a scientific perspective? Dr. Paul Weiblen,
professor emeritus in Geology at the University of Minnesota and an
associate of the Minnesota Geological Survey, offers a broad and accessible
view on the geology, value, and concerns surrounding precious metal
deposits in northern Minnesota.
