- Gogebic Taconite will take longer than originally planned to apply for a mining permit in northern Wisconsin.
The company says its application to develop an iron ore mine in Ashland and Iron counties will be pushed back until at least the fall of next year.
Gogebic had planned to submit an application in the spring of 2015 to develop a 1.5 billion dollar iron ore mine in the Lake Superior region.
A company spokesman says Gogebic won't finish all fieldwork this year and will be forced to conduct additional environmental work next year.
The approaching of fall is prompting Gogebic to wrap up some fieldwork already.
