August 18 Guest Lecture @ Cook County Higher Education: Permitting and Regulation for Sulfide Mining in Minnesota.

Our next Guest Lecture is on a Monday: August 18 from 7:00 – 8:30 pm at the North Shore Campus in Grand Marais.  We are pleased to have Ron Meador, environmental journalist as our presenter.  He will provide us with details surrounding the “Permitting and Regulation for Sulfide Mining in Minnesota.” 

When it comes to the issues surrounding copper-nickel mining, Minnesota is thought to have a very stringent process for review and control of the possible environmental effects from mining activity.  But how are these concerns crafted into specific standards and criteria for a mining permit issued to a mining company?   How much money should the mining company have to put up front for “financial assurance” to guarantee its ability to pay for environmental remediation?  What are the legal and financial structures that can guarantee enforcement into a distant future of perhaps hundreds of years?   This presentation will cover the topic of Financial Assurance and other issues in the ongoing review of copper-nickel mining projects proposed for Minnesota’s North Woods.

MOOSEBASSADORS NEEDED!

We may be in the thick of summer, but fall is right around the corner, and that means Moose Madness!

Folks from Minneapolis, Minnesota to Missoula, Montana travel to our area to join us for Moose Madness, and this year the event will be October 17 and 18, 2014.  This festival continues to grow rapidly every year, and we celebrate one of our favorite - and largest- creatures, the magnificent moose!

Last year, the Grand Prize for two free nights lodging was donated by whom else? The Mangy Moose Motel. This year, we again need volunteers, sponsors, prize donations, and many Moosebassadors to carry on the tradition of this fun family festival. Questions? Contact Visit Cook County at anna@visitcookcounty.com .
