Letter: Comments on Keweenaw Now's Aug. 4 article, "Keweenaw Now tours Rio Tinto Eagle Mine water treatment plant"

[Editor's Note: Jack Parker, mining engineer, whom we quoted in our Aug. 4, 2012, article, "Keweenaw Now tours Rio Tinto Eagle Mine water treatment plant," recently sent the following comments on this article. We are printing them here as a letter to the editor.]

Dear Editor:

No comments to date, August 16th -- so somebody had better do it. I will.

It should be recognized that the water-treatment plant is Kennecott’s showpiece, and they have put a lot of work and money into it to show us how much they want to save Lake Superior from pollution. Give them five points for that but realize that they do not know how much water they will have to treat, how much will come from the mine and how much Mother Nature will send as rain and snow and floods, or what will be in the water.  Neither do they know where the treated water will go.

To get a fix on mine water they did test the permeability of the rock, as you were told, and found it to be low; but any thinking person would suspect that greater quantities could come from broken rock and fissures, not through intact rock. The diamond drill cores show plenty of both, and, contrary to standard practice, driller reports of water encountered or water lost were not in the application for permits.

Similarly we are told that the treated water will infiltrate the soil at the drainfield and flow gradually to the northeast. An impervious layer "C" of clay and silt "will" keep that water in the upper aquifer and prevent it going downward into the lower aquifer, maybe into bedrock above the mine, maybe back into the mine.

What they did not tell you, and perhaps nobody told your guides, is that there are big holes in that "impervious layer." One of them is at the infiltration site. When they presented their study to MDEQ (Michigan Department of Environmental Quality) for approval they "forgot" to include those test borings which showed the gaps. For their study they spaced their test holes hundreds or thousands of feet apart, which is entirely inadequate in the highly variable glacial geology at the site. Their interpretation of the data from those holes is, therefore, questionable, as a hasty effort which a freshman geology student might submit. (See the "North Jackson Hydrogeological Report."**)

But note that MDEQ did not object to or reject the report. That should raise your eyebrows.

Note that the mine will be under or near one of the several branches of the Salmon Trout River, not under the main stream.

The surface plant is impressive, exceptionally neat. Good housekeeping.

The tunnel is not being "drilled," as if by a boring machine, but drilled and blasted conventionally.

Most of the water they treat today comes from precipitation. That may not be the case if and when the mine goes into production. Neither should we expect to be able to predict amount of precipitation. Ask NOAA about 100-year floods.

The statement that the effluent from the plant will be sampled monthly should have been questioned. Would the 5 minutes of sampling be representative of the one month of operation, which is 43,200 minutes? No way! And a schoolboy would quickly learn that there are good times to take samples and times to be avoided. "Selective sampling" we call it. But MDEQ raises no objection.

In answer to Steve Garske’s question about possible lowering of the water table your guide told you about the "impermeable" layer preventing interaction of mine water and ground water, without considering the holes in layer "C." She even pointed out that there are other test wells, sampled quarterly, but that won’t help.

Then Dan brought the conversation back to the treatment plant.

I, JP,  don’t know enough about water treatment to comment on the process but believe that since they frequently promise water "too pure to drink" they will have to keep that promise.

Dan’s statement that "A coagulant creates bigger chunks so it settles solid metals" may or may not have been misquoted. The coagulant causes fine particles to clump together so that they are more easily settled and/or filtered. Metals may or may not be involved.

I am curious about the large amount of solids filtered out, shown in a bin. Are they mostly vegetable material, blown into the water?

What chemical contents might not be acceptable to the County Landfill?

I remember the sodium zeolite ion exchange. One of my jobs as a kid was to replenish the sodium chloride every weekend, at home. After refilling we had to flush the system, down the drain.

At the reverse osmosis stop I would have asked how much electrical power is needed at full capacity. I know that it’s a lot, but wonder if that’s really why they switched from diesel gens to line power.

I would not dwell on the HCl spill too much. For them it was a welcome, easily-handled diversion.

Most important, I think, is the fact that "accidents" do happen. If an accident is defined as a happening which could not have been prevented -- then most accidents are not really accidents. My truck will never run into anybody if nobody drives it. If a mine collapse could have been prevented it will not be an accident.

"The treated water will be sampled." Here again I think that sampling should be continuous, not subject to deceptive selection. An example of selectivity: At the White Pine smelter rubber-coated copper cables generated thick black smoke -- so woe betide the operator who dumped some in the furnace on day shift!

Next we head for the underworld. "Development rock … does not contain nickel and copper ore." That is not necessarily true. Some of it will.

"All development rock will be returned underground as fill." Given the changes in ventilation system -- (Did anybody see an amendment for that, or participate in public comment?) -- that rock will have to be trucked in via the portal, right?

"Every 100 ft the tunnel drops 13 feet." A giant staircase. Hard on trucks and kidneys.

The close-up photo of the portal shows a vent pipe going into the tunnel structure. Will the air there be recycled? We’ll see, when we get some frosty mornings and condensation.

"The tunnel is to be a mile long." That does not include the spiral ramp down to the sump, does it?

Neither does it prepare for production, right?

Maybe I’m wrong, but I thought that the area at Eagle Rock inside the outer fence "was not to be disturbed." It has been disturbed significantly. For example -- there is now an inner fence -- an open admission that the application statement that there was nothing of religious or historical interest was a false statement.

I see mention of "Partially treated waste water?" Is that correct?

There are quotes from my earlier trip report, and that’s OK. Missing is the most significant statement, I think, which is that I thought that the men on the job were earnestly striving to do good work and should be exonerated from all blame -- but that MDEQ and upper KEMC/Rio Tinto management should be prosecuted for submitting/accepting a substandard, deceptive and fraudulent application and a questionable mine plan. That has not changed.

P.S. Surely there is something amiss about Dan's statement that Kennecott Exploration "Has found no mineralization."  Please explain ...  jp

On July 23, 2012 (the 99th anniversary of the start of the 1913 Copper Miners' Strike) at the Finnish American Heritage Center in Hancock, Erik Nordberg, Michigan Tech University archivist, helps community members brainstorm ideas during the first of three meetings on the 1913 Strike Centennial Project, a district-wide community effort to commemorate the historic strike -- possibly through exhibits, historical re-enactments, music, theater, conferences, speakers, K-12 reading and writing activities and more. The second meeting on the project will be held at 7 p.m. TOMORROW, Thursday, Aug. 16, at the Houghton Township Community Room in Eagle River. (Photos by Keweenaw Now)

HOUGHTON -- A public meeting at the Houghton Township Community Room in Eagle River at 7 p.m. TOMORROW, Thursday, Aug. 16, will discuss activities to mark the centennial of the 1913 Michigan copper miners’ strike. The nearly year-long strike by members of the Western Federation of Miners is one of the most significant events in Copper Country history and also figures critically in national labor struggles of the era.

During the July 23, 2012, meeting on the 1913 Strike Centennial Project, Hilary Virtanen, Finnish American Heritage Center public programming coordinator, and Glenda Bierman, Quincy Mine Hoist Association manager, chat with Gary Kaunonen, Michigan Tech graduate student in Humanities. Kaunonen is co-author, with Dr. Aaron Goings of St. Martin's University in Washington State, of a book (to be published by Michigan State University Press) which argues that the 1913-1914 strike was the culmination of decades of regional labor struggles.

The meeting in Eagle River is intended to confirm specific events during the commemoration. Historical exhibits, speakers’ events, tie-in activities for K-12 students, tours of historic sites connected to the strike, a scholarly symposium on historical topics, a memorial ceremony at the Italian Hall site, and other activities will engage both local residents and out-of-town visitors in remembering and understanding this important era in local history.

Hancock City Councilor John Haeussler speaks at the July 23 meeting about commemorating events of the strike that occurred at Hancock's historic Scott Hotel.

An additional meeting is scheduled at the Ontonagon Theatre in Ontonagon at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 15. All meetings are free and open to the general public.

During the July 23 meeting in Hancock, Kathleen Harter of the Keweenaw National Historical Park makes suggestions concerning a possible multi-media presentation on the historic events of 1913.

At the July 23 meeting, local historian and Red Jacket Trolley owner Wil Shapton, who also has experience working with children's historic costume programs and re-enactments, suggests ways to involve children and connect them to the historic events.

Joanne Thomas of Keweenaw County talks about her research on 1913 strike leader "Big"Annie Klobuchar Clemenc with Brian Hoduski, chief of Keweenaw National Historical Park museum services.

Whether or not you attended the July 23 meeting, you are invited to this second meeting in Eagle River and to the third meeting in Ontonagon.

Red Metal Radio Show returns to Calumet Theatre Aug. 16

CALUMET -- The Red Metal Radio Show will hit the airwaves for the fourth year in a row at 7 p.m. on Thursday, August 16, live from the Calumet Theatre. This annual radio program, sponsored by Main Street Calumet as part of its August Heritage Celebration, focuses each year on a different aspect of Keweenaw history and culture -- and this year will feature a look at local humor. The show will be broadcast on K-Bear Radio, 102.3 FM, and streamed on the internet from the K-bear website.

Oren Tikkanen -- the show’s writer, producer, and host -- says, "Our audience has been very receptive and supportive, but one question we always get is -- why don’t we have more of the local humor? Next year’s show is planned to be about the 1913 Strike so that one will be pretty serious, and we decided we’d better do a light-hearted program right away."

Tikkanen will be joined by local humorists and singers Kris Kyro and Glen Johnson, with music by Dave Bezotte, Tom Hiltunen, and the Backroom Boys Jazz Band.*

"We’re going to be presenting a great variety of funny stuff," says Tikkanen. "Some of it goes back over 100 years, and some of it is pretty current -- but it all has a local slant. It’s an affectionate look at the funny side of life in the Keweenaw and the UP, from immigrant times to the present."

Tikkanen says that he is very pleased with the cast he has lined up for the show.

"Kris and Glen are both very experienced performers and are very funny people," Tikkanen notes. "Dave Bezotte will sing a humorous French-Canadian song, with simultaneous translation. Tom Hiltunen will be singing comic ditties he learned from the great Art Moilanen, and others. We’ll have some original songs and parodies based on historical events. And jokes -- lots of jokes."

The show, as always, will be performed before a live audience, and everyone is invited. Those attending are asked to be in the theater by 6:50 p.m. for the on-air start time of 7 p.m.

Come find out the facts about Heikki and Hilma in the Model T, Cousin Jack's and Cousin Jenny's 50th Anniversary, and Petit-Jean and the bear. Get the whole story about Perrine (the priest's housemaid), and about the Finnish women taking the law into their own hands during the 1872 Calumet strike. Discover for yourself the quick wit of Big Erick Erickson, and the legend of Big Joe Mufferaw (Joseph Montferrand).

Tickets are only $10.50 for adults, and $8.00 for children or people as old as Oren Tikkanen (senior citizens). For those who have even less money than Oren Tikkanen, the show will be broadcast on K-Bear Radio, WHKB-FM, 102.3 MHZ, and streamed live on the K-Bear website (contact all your family and friends who live away from here, and tell them to listen online).

Michigamme Moonshine Art Gallery to exhibit water color paintings by Bill Hamilton

"Strictly for the Birds." Water Color by Bill Hamilton. (Photos courtesy Michigamme Moonshine Art Gallery)

MICHIGAMME -- The Michigamme Moonshine Art Gallery will host "Manifestations of Light: Fine Water Colors by Bill Hamilton" from Aug. 15 through Sept. 15, 2012. A reception will be held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 19, 2012, at Michigamme Moonshine Art Gallery,  136 E. Main, Michigamme, Mich. 49861. Refreshments will be served.

Bill Hamilton is well known for his landscape paintings of the Upper Peninsula. As an artist, he continues to draw inspiration from the local area. But lately, Hamilton has become interested in depicting and sharing his particular talents as a watercolorist for subjects outside the U.P.

Around the U.S. Hamilton’s painting skills take on subjects like the Rio Grande River and the Gulf Coast.

Artist Bill Hamilton will exhibit his new water color paintings at the Michigamme Moonshine Art Gallery from Aug. 15 through Sept. 15, 2012.

"This is part of who I am," he explains. "Experiences from my trips inspire me to take on new challenges as a painter."

His latest work reflects his extensive travels overseas to Ireland and mainland China. Fresh views of new places catch his and our attention.

"At this stage of my career, I’m eager to broaden my artistic horizons," Hamilton says.

Finding the special qualities of unfamiliar settings requires a good understanding of light, composition, and scale. Observing the nuances of color and value, Hamilton applies his decades of experiences and skill to create breathtaking interpretations of new places in a sensitive, unforced way.

Regardless of the location, Hamilton’s favorite subject is still nature.

Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday - Sunday. Tuesdays by appointment. For more information call 906-323-6546.

Michigan League of Conservation Voters: Romney picks climate-denying Paul Ryan as running mate

By Ryan Werder, Michigan League of Conservation Voters
Posted Aug. 13, 2012, in Michigan LCV's "Political Week in Review"

Mitt Romney picked Paul Ryan as his nominee for Vice President this weekend. Ryan, a congressman from Wisconsin's 1st District, has an abysmal 3 percent score on the current national League of Conservation Voters Scorecard and a 20 percent lifetime score. I suppose it could be fun to see my name on so many lawn signs soon, but Romney’s pick doesn’t make it worth it. 3 percent is simply awful.

Ryan's shift toward the extreme end of the anti-conservation wing of his party and Mitt Romney's selection of him as a running mate is a dramatic turn away from the conservation legacy traditionally supported by Republicans. While the trees in Michigan might be the right height for Mitt Romney, his VP is the wrong pick for Michigan and our Great Lakes.

Calumet Theatre to host "An Evening of Acoustic Blues and Folk" Aug. 13

CALUMET -- The Calumet Theatre is pleased to present "An Evening of Acoustic Blues and Folk" at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 13. This concert -- featuring the talents of Michigan artists Robert Jones, Matt Watroba and Mustard's Retreat -- is part of the Musical Mondays Music Series. One more concert is scheduled this summer at the Theatre and additional  events will be held at the Keweenaw Heritage Center.

For over 20 years Robert Jones has been a champion of American Roots music, with a special emphasis on traditional African American blues. He is a storyteller, a preacher, an artist, and a teacher. Stories, spirituals, blues, work songs, field hollers, country music, folk songs, gospel and original songs are all a part of his special talent.

Matt Watroba brings a very special set of talents to the stage. His excellent guitar playing, mellow voice, friendship with his audience, and knowledge of his presentations is impressive. Add to that Matt's own special brand of humor and you are in for a most entertaining and enlightening evening.

Everything Mustard's Retreat does on a stage is aimed at pleasing, moving and engaging their audience. Whether singing their own gentle love songs and vivid ballads, telling tall tales or offering treasures from America's vast traditional song bag, a Mustard's Retreat show always feels like it's designed for the people who have come to see them that day, in that coffeehouse, school, concert hall or festival. Audiences sense this from the moment David and Michael hit the stage -- and folks are drawn to it like hungry kids to Sunday supper!

General seating tickets for "An Evening of Acoustic Blues and Folk" are $13. Discount for Theatre members.

The Musical Mondays Concert Series is sponsored by WMPL 920 AM, Range Bank and a grant from the Copper Country Community Arts Council.
