MADISON - A company looking to dig an iron mine in the Penokee Hills will need to answer MORE questions from the DNR.

Gogebic Taconite submitted its bulk sampling and storm-water permits in late November and early December.

The DNR responded with 11 questions from the bulk sampling permit, but that permit has already been granted.

It asked for more details on possible blasting, road construction and sampling for asbestos.

Questions regarding the storm-water permit focus on issues with runoff, sediment control and erosion.

Approval of the storm-water permit will be on hold until Gogebic Taconite responds to the questions.

A link to both DNR documents are below.
