MICHIGAMME TOWNSHIP, MI - The life of a nickel-and-copper mine in the Upper Peninsula would be extended a year to 2023 if the owner taps a mineral deposit that was discovered in 2014.
Eagle East is about 1 1/2 miles east of Eagle Mine in Marquette County's Michigamme Township.
The owner, Lundin Mining of Toronto, says there could be more than 1 million tons of mineral resources at Eagle East. Matt Johnson, Eagle Mine manager of external relations, says Eagle East adds value.
