MILWAUKEE, Wis. -- From Ashland, Wis., WUWM Milwaukee Public Radio Environmental Reporter Susan Bence interviewed scientists of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Northland College professors and a Northland student in Natural Resources concerning the potential environmental impacts of the proposed open-pit Gogebic Taconite mine in the Penokee Hills.

The interview was broadcast and posted today, Feb. 17, 2012, as Wisconsin legislators attempt to push the proposed Assembly mining bill through the Wisconsin Senate to speed up the permitting process for the Gogebic Taconite project.
