This Thursday, 8/15/13, the Wisconsin DNR will be holding a public hearing on GTAC's application for bulk sampling and preapplication intent to mine. The hearing will be held at Hurley High School, 5503 West Range View Drive, Hurley, WI, from 10am until 8pm. Informative presentations by DNR staff will be conducted at 10:00am and again at 5:00pm, with public testimony all day. You are encouraged to submit spoken or written comments at the hearing.

Under Wisconsin's new mining legislation, public hearings are few and far between. This is one of them. It is critical that as many people as possible attend in support of our water and land.

If you are unable to attend in person, written comments may also be submitted to Larry Lynch, DNR, 101 S. Webster Street, Madison, Wisconsin 53707, or by e-mail to Deadline for written comments is September 3.

Prior to the hearing, a rally will is being held at at 9:00am outside the high school. Please bring signs and posters.

Finally, a group will be biking to the hearing from Ashland. If you want to join the bikers, meet at the parking lot behind the Ashland Baking Company at 5:00am, and bring small signs you can affix to your body and/or bike.
