Mining Making a Comeback in the Midwest. Will We?

Mining Making a Comback

Photo Captions: A new nickel and copper mine planned for Marquette, Mich., is expected to pump $4 billion into the county over its eight-year lifespan and create hundreds of new jobs.

Below is an article about a copper mine making a comeback in the Midwest. We are hoping to have similar news once the lands bill that has been stuck in Congress for 2 years gets passed.

Passage of the lands bill will jump start Pumpkin Hollow – a billion dollar copper mine in Yerington, Nevada.  The investment does not cost the tax payers a dime but will results in thousands of high paying jobs and millions in tax revenue.

If you would like to see our lands bill get passed, join the Northern Nevada Grassroots Coalition: Pass Bills. Create Jobs.

Mining Making a Comeback in Midwest – Associated Press Story

WHITE PINE, Mich. – A way of life dating back more than a century appeared over in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula when the last copper mine closed in 1995, idling more than 1,000 employees and turning this once-thriving company town into a forlorn outpost.

Now a Canadian company is planning a new mine at the site a few miles from Lake Superior, where screeching gulls hover over empty buildings and parking lots are littered with broken glass. If Highland Copper Co.’s plans go forward, the area will be astir once more as underground ores are blasted, hauled to the surface and crushed at a mill to extract valuable minerals.

White Pine’s impending rebirth is almost miraculous to local residents who have borne the brunt of its demise, but it’s part of something even bigger: a surprising resurgence of a mining industry that once was an economic pillar in three Upper Midwestern states but has been in serious decline.

In the past few years, at least six open-pit or underground mines have been proposed or started in Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin, the first such ventures in decades. Additionally, four new Minnesota operations are using refined technology to extract iron from waste rock mined long ago. Other companies are exploring the region’s ample deposits of iron, copper, nickel and other metals, which have become more marketable because of improved technology and rising demand in the U.S. and China.

“I thought there was no way it was ever coming back,” said Dan Kessler, who was 34, married and the father of two young children when the White Pine closure left him jobless. Now, he says, if the project comes through, “I’d like to see the schools open again.”

This legislation is the right thing to do.  Help us and our Nevada Congressional delegation get it passed.

What Costs Nothing, but is Worth a Billion? Our Bill!

Worth 1 Billion Cost Nothing

The Lyon County Economic Development and Conservation Act will transfer 10,000 acres of BLM-administered federal land to the City of Yerington.

What Is It Worth? $1 Billion!

What Does it Cost? Not One Dime!!

*****NO COST TO THE TAXPAYERS*****

And, will jump-start the development of the Pumpkin Hollow Copper Mine that has an initial capital investment of $1 billion.

That’s not even the bottom line.  The new Copper Mine will help generate the following:

• $34 million in direct sales and use taxes
• $45 million annual local, direct payroll
• $10-12 million annually in net property and net proceeds of mines taxes
• $20-30 million annual federal taxes

What other federal legislation can claim that kind of economic benefit without costing the taxpayers?

We hope that this bipartisan, locally-supported bill, A ONE BILLION DOLLAR economic bill, will pass soon.
