CHAMPION -- Eagle Mine will host a series of community forums this week and next week in order to keep the public informed about activities at Eagle Mine. Since the last round of forums Eagle Mine has begun operations. They are now mining, milling, and shipping nickel and copper concentrates to their customers.

During the forums Eagle representatives will present an inside look at their operations and introduce some of their team members. In addition, they will ask you to participate in the Eagle Mine Community Scorecard. The Scorecard is an opportunity for residents to rate Eagle Mine's performance over the past six months in the areas of safety, environmental protection, local hire, communication, and community development.

Most importantly, the series is designed for a two-way dialog between Eagle and the community. The public is encouraged to come and ask questions about operations and activities.

All forums will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Here is the schedule of dates and locations:

Monday, Oct. 27 -- Michigamme Township Hall
Wednesday, Oct. 29 -- Humboldt Township Hall
Monday, Nov. 3 -- Powell Township Hall
Wednesday, Nov. 5 -- Marquette Township Hall

Enter to win a tour

Attendees at the forums will have an opportunity to enter a drawing for a chance to take an underground mine tour or a mill tour. One person from each forum will be selected to take up to two guests with them on their tour of choice.*

*Persons must be present at the time of the drawing and 18 years of age or older. For more information, please call (906) 273-1550 or email
