WAVE Players Lampoon Corrupt Michigan Officials, Politicians, Crooked Sulfide Mining Company
(Marquette, MI) - A new environmental group, WAVE (Wave Action Vital Earth) is the action arm of Save The Wild U.P. The battle continues in 2011 to stop the Rio Tinto/Kennecott Minerals Sulfide "Acid" Mine on the Yellow Dog Plains in a remote area in north Marquette County near Lake Superior and the tiny hamlet of Big Bay, MI. The WAVE Players have decided to use humor -- because the real facts (keep reading) are enough to make honest people cry. Documents have revealed a possible criminal conspiracy between the state of Michigan, Kennecott Minerals and Rio Tinto. Not something unusual for the international mining giant Rio Tinto, whose minions are charged with a wide range of crimes across the globe including bribery, violating environment laws and human rights violations. "Rio Tinto was complicit in war crimes and crimes against humanity," stated the residents of the island of Bougainville in Papua New Guinea in a lawsuit filed against Rio Tinto. In China, Rio Tinto bosses were arrested for bribery -- a practice the company has used in many projects in order to get politicians, police, prosecutors and judges on their side. So why then -- did the state of Michigan decide to get into a toxic bed of sulfuric acid with Rio Tinto - including blatantly violating treaties with the Ojibwa/Anishinaabe -- with plans to destroy sacred Eagle Rock (an ions old Native American outdoor church). In addition to crimes, all mines opened by Kennecott Minerals have serious environmental problems. MI Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm (Dem.) and Attorney General Mike Cox (State's top cop) refused to answer questions about a financial connection with the mine owners. WAVE and other U.P. residents have asked the MI Attorney General Bill Schuette (Republican) to investigate a series of suspicious actions involving Rio Tinto and state officials. Those suspected of wrongdoing included employees of the MI Dept. of Environmental Quality, Gov. Granholm and her staff. Previous Attorney General Mike Cox (Republican) -- refused to investigate the allegations and refused to answer questions about his (or family) financial connections with the mining company. Will MI Attorney General Bill Schuette open a probe? Is it strange that MI Governor Granholm and the 7 candidates for her job (included Mike Cox, future Gov. Rick Snyder) all refused to reveal any financial connections of any kind with Rio Tinto, Kennecott Minerals and its subsidiaries, agents, lobbyists etc. All eight could have stated they have no financial connections - instead they refused comment.

Produced by the Marion Power Shovel Company, this fascinating movie looks at copper and copper mining in the 1960s, when the American mines were at peak production and financial troubles loomed. The film looks at the future of mining, including the development of efficiencies to keep mines in business. Open pit mining techniques are shown, with a focus on the Southwest. At 2:00, Bingham Canyon and the Utah Mining Company pit (also known as the Kennecott Copper Mine) is seen. At 2:40, various open pit mines are seen which use either trucks or trains to remove ore. Although they are not named, it's likely that one of them is the Phelps-Dodge mine at Bisbee, Arizona. At 5:40, exploratory core drilling is shown. At 6:30, exploration programs are shown including at 6:43, an engineering team that maps mine development. Various drill systems are seen at 9:00, including the rotary drill. At 10:30, preparations are seen towards using explosives with the burying of dynamite and detonators for excavation. At 12:12, loading of explosives is seen with an emphasis on safe handling. At 14:51, a cage drill is shown in use allowing rocks to be drilled in the field (without being moved by shovels) for explosive removal. At 16:00, a small 4.5 yard bucket shovel is shown being used to move blast debris. At 16:00, a 6-yard loading shovel is seen. At 17:49, overburden waste from the pit is loaded on a train so that it can be moved and dumped at a remote area. At 18:50, a 13-yard shovel is seen in use with a large truck also in use. As the narrator explains, these large size equipment is needed to lower unit costs of copper, and are an economic necessity given the modern financial conditions. At 19:52, the motorized wheel principle of new types of mining trucks is seen, and the narrator comments that next generation trucks will carry over 100 tons of ore. At 22:55, a grader is seen working the mine roads, and the narrator comments about how tires wear out so quickly on the job that they account for up to 1% of mining costs. At 24:30, railroad trains are shown on the move at a mine, moving 60-125 ton per car loads. The narrator comments further on the use of railroads in pit mining. At 26:30, a large shovel is seen loading a train, sprinkling the loads with water to hold down dust. The large boulders in the loads make this type of work dangerous. At 27:16, ore loads are dumped into a crusher at a mill site. At 27:40, a rail waste dump into a slag pile is seen. At 28:00, a train-based grader is used to clear tracks of debris. The narrator notes that the mining railroads are some of the busiest in the USA and the world. At 28:44, new tracks are installed due to various demands, and mechanized railroad ballast systems are used for fast track installation. At 31:20, a skip hoist is seen being used to take ore from a deep, small pit to the surface. At 32:50, a series of leeching ponds is seen, with water percolated through the ponds to precipitate copper. At 34:00, a machine shop is seen at the mine, providing repair and maintenance services at the mine. At 35:40, a heavy repair part is unloaded at the mine using a power shovel. At 36:00, a research laboratory is seen at work, developing new uses of copper in the atomic and other industries. At 36:40, the IBM Ramac computer is seen. The IBM 305 RAMAC was the first commercial computer that used a moving-head hard disk drive (magnetic disk storage) for secondary storage. The film ends with a shot of a heap of pennies, with the narrator noting that the industry is working hard to expand production to fulfill future needs. The Bingham Canyon Mine, more commonly known as Kennecott Copper Mine, is extracting a large porphyry copper deposit southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah, in the Oquirrh Mountains. The mine is the largest man-made excavation in the world and produced more copper than any other mine in history – more than 19 million tons. The mine has been in production since 1906, and has resulted in the creation of a pit over 0.6 miles (970 m) deep, 2.5 miles (4 km) wide, and covering 1,900 acres (770 ha). Marion Power Shovel Company was an American firm that designed, manufactured and sold steam shovels, power shovels, blast hole drills, excavators, and dragline excavators. The company was a major supplier of shovels for the construction of the Panama Canal. Founded in Marion, Ohio in August, 1884 as the Marion Steam Shovel Company, the company grew through sales and acquisitions throughout the 20th century. The company changed its name to Marion Power Shovel Company in 1946 to reflect the industry's change from steam power to diesel power.

Environmentalists Call Mining Plan OK "Premature"
A proposed northern Minnesota mining project that is politically and environmentally controversial has cleared a big hurdle, but still has a long way to go before construction can begin. On Thursday, Minnesota’s Department of Natural Resources deemed the PolyMet mine’s Final Environmental Impact Statement “adequate”. The study and approval took six years. Leaders from Minnesota environmental organizations, and even Governor Mark Dayton, argue there is more work to be done. At a press conference, Dayton noted that with the approval of the PolyMet final environmental impact statement, government officials, PolyMet, and others can begin the real work of making sure the proposed Northmet copper mining project helps bolster Minnesota’s economy, while also preserving and sustaining the environment. PolyMet’s next steps are the completion of 23 permits at the local, state, and federal level. “That’s where the real environmental review, as far as I am concerned, is going to take place to determine that this is going to be a project that will be entirely as safe as humanly possible for the environment now and in the years to follow and furthermore, that the company will commit to the hard currency necessary to guarantee Minnesotans that if something were to go untoward during the life of the project, which is estimated to be about 20 years thereafter, that burden will not fall on Minnesota taxpayers. This rigor begins now and we’ll proceed from there,” Governor Dayton said.. Dayton says the state is also preparing for a lawsuit. He expects the losing side will sue. His administration will have final say on approving the project and he says he remains “genuinely undecided” on approving it. So environmental groups are urging concerned citizens to contact the governor to express their opinion. Minnesota environmentalists remain concerned that the proposed mine will have a longstanding effect of Minnesota’s waterways. “The DNR announced that they found the Environmental Impact Statement to be adequate. We are not surprised by that decision, but we are disappointed, because there is still a whole host of unresolved issues that Minnesotans have been bringing up over and over again,” said Aaron Klemz Advocacy Director for Friends of the Boundary Waters. Klemz called the DNR's OK "premature" and said the permitting phase of the project is not as transparent and could lead to "back room" discussions between regulators and PolyMet that the public will not be able to see. Klemz believes there are two main problems with the proposed mining project: the unknown direction of the waterflow and its potential impact on the Boundary waters, as well as the lack of protection for the 8,000 acres of wetlands found at the proposed mine site. According to the environmental impact statement, the proposed mine would cause 41,000 tons day waste rock, disturb 2,177 acres vegetation, and impact both lynx & wolves. It would also bring a total of 800 jobs to the area, of which 360 would be full-time, and the remaining would be temporary construction jobs. PolyMet is planning on mining for copper, nickel, and other precious metals for upwards of twenty years. The Sierra Club Northstar Chapter also released a statement today, “This determination is disappointing, given the enormous risks of PolyMet’s deeply flawed sulfide mine proposal and the many questions left unanswered by the Final Environmental Impact Statement. The FEIS failed to fully evaluate pollution risks and health impacts and shows that the project would pose an unacceptable threat to Lake Superior – degradation of surface water, groundwater, and wetlands, and harm to endangered and threatened wildlife,” says Margaret Levin, the Sierra Club State Director. The final environmental impact statement was a 3,500 page document. It received 58,000 comments from Minnesotans and was discussed by 4,000 Minnesotans in three public hearings held in 2014. The proposed mine site is in ...

Marcia Bjornerud - Professor of Geology - Lawrence University
I have studied the geology of the Lake Superior region since I was in graduate school and have had an ongoing research project in the Penokee range for the past 10 years. Last spring, together with a colleague from the US Geological Survey (William Cannon), I led a group of 60 geologists on a field trip just west of Mellen, WI as part of the annual Institute of Lake Superior Geology. Two of my most recently published papers have been about the geology of the Penokee range. I also served as an expert witness for the National Wildlife Federation and the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community in a 2008 contested case hearing in Michigan regarding the Kennecott/Rio Tinto Eagle Rock sulfide mine northwest of Marquette, MI. I know that GLIFWC was also involved in this case. This has been edited for space. The full testimony is here: http://woodsperson.blogspot.com/2012/02/on-listening-to-testimony-marcia.html Like you, I find the restrictions for the review process absurd and antiscientific, and the provisions for wetlands 'mitigation' absurd, but I wanted in particular to contribute information about the 'overburden' waste rock that will have to be removed if the proposed mine were created. Namely, there ARE sulfide minerals (mainly pyrite) in the rock unit that lies immediately above the banded iron formation (the Ironwood iron formation) that is the target rock of the proposed mine. The sulfide-bearing layer is called the Tyler Formation, and it is a black shale, locally baked to a slate, that was laid down under low-oxygen (reducing) conditions, so the iron in it occurs as FeCO3 (siderite) and FeS2 (pyrite) rather than hematite (Fe2O3) or magnetite (Fe3O4) as in the iron ore body. So I emphatically agree with Ms. Soltis' suggestion that that the dichotomy between ferrous and sulfide mines is artificial and the mining bill is flawed in its very conception. Please feel free to cite me as the source of this information, share it with others, and let me know if I can help in any way with your work. Marcia Bjornerud Professor of Geology Lawrence University

Trees are budding within the forest teeming with birds and other unseen wildlife nearby Ballou Creek. The grass-roots gathering of citizens have come to walk along what may one day be the site of a four-mile long open pit mine. Newly formed mining company Gogebic Taconite (GTAC) has purchased an option to lease mineral rights extending 22 miles from Mellen to Upson in Ashland and Iron counties for the potential iron operation. Frank Koehn, editor of savethewatersedge.com, helped organize the walk. Others spoke about what information is available on water quality in the area as well as any research on endangered resources.

We will be screening several short documentaries about environmental devastation in Michigan: "The Echo Maker" discusses sulfide mining on Native American sacred site, Eagle Rock, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We'll also be showing a few teaser interviews on the corporate and government cover-up of the toxic tar sands spill in the Kalamazoo River. Filmmaker Steve Zieverink and Carl Wassilie visiting from Alaska's Big Village Network will host the discussion following the screening. Brought to you by Hypha Films, Center for Water Advocacy and Alaska's Big Village Network. Donations gratefully accepted to help complete the films. Details on the film "The Echo Maker": This project to be completed by Hypha Films will share voices of the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community and other Anishinaabe people located in the region, and focus on the effect of the Kennecott-Rio Tinto Eagle Mine upon the Anishinaabe and their homelands. The video short will build awareness within the KBIC and other tribal and non-Native communities in the region. It will also serve as the first step towards a broader documentary envisioned centered on the Great Lakes Region as a whole and the threat of 19% of the worlds fresh water supply due to the cumulative impacts of previous, current, and proposed mining. Grant funds could help to support travel, logistical execution, subject/peoples bridging, on-site documentation, post production and community outreach (screenings, schools, film festivals, competitions, museums, etc.). Full Length Documentary Featuring Additional Locations & Issues: Hypha Films larger goal is to produce a full length documentary film in partnership with additional communities of the region that will highlight the effects of mining upon the peoples, land, and water of the Great Lakes region. For instance, not only is the region directly threatened by numerous prospective mines, but tar sands pipelines built by the Enbridge Energy Company also threaten the Great Lakeʼs waterways and have already led to the largest oil spill in Midwest history in the town of Marshall, Michigan which contaminated Battle Creek, the Kalamazoo River and Lake Michigan.

River of Iron by David Lee
HEMATITE AND TALES of streets paved with gold drew boatloads of Europeans to the Marquette Iron Range in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula in the late 1800s—including my ancestors. The rugged terrain and savage winters of their new home on the “mountain of iron” threatened their survival, yet they had no chance of returning to The Old County—and they knew it. Some left, but the hardy ones stayed, threw up mining camps and drove mineshafts deep into the granite. They raised families—built churches, railroads, and schools—they created a river of iron that cascaded out of the wilderness. Then the Great Depression struck in 1929 and the river of iron dwindled to a trickle. Without means of support the iron miners and their families persevered against a destroyed economy and fierce winters. This is a tale of how my family survived those tough times. It tells of simple things like collecting water, chopping firewood, and slaughtering hogs, but it is also a template for raising and educating a family on challenging terrain in the midst of poverty.

For instance, on December 21st 2012 by Resolution, the Black Hills Sioux Nation Treaty Council also stated they were "vehemently opposed to the construction of the TransCanada/Keystone XL Pipeline Project on any Aboriginal or Treaty lands." • Held a Ceremonial Grand Council to Affirm a Unifying International Treaty between Indigenous Peoples and All Our Allies Who Seek to Protect the Sacred from the Tar Sands and the Keystone XL Pipeline. This International Treaty builds upon the Save the Fraser River Declaration, Rights of Mother Earth Accord, Indigenous Leaders Spiritual Declaration, the Sixteen Guiding Principles for Building a Harmonious World, the Coastal First Nations Declaration, and the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. • Built the Foundation for a Spiritually-Grounded, Principle-Centered Interdependent Campaign for Unprecedented Unified Action to Protect Our Sacred Mother Earth.
