Minocqua Site Of County, Towns Association Mining Meeting


Local government officials are expected to wait to pass new mining regulations until after a seminar is held in Minocqua January 24th.

The Wisconsin Towns Association is working with the Wisconsin Counties Association on the meeting where information on a new mining law will be shared.

Governor Scott Walker signed the law in Rhinelander ending the moratorium on copper, zinc, lead, gold and other sulfide mines December 11th.

The law doesn't go into effect for six months, giving counties time to put their own mining regulations into place.
