On June 13, 2013 Ashland County Zoning Committee held a public hearing on a new metallic mining ordinance meant to protect the people and resources of the state from the risks of metallic mining.
On June 18, 2013 Iron County Zoning Committee took similar steps. At the end of the meeting, GTac representative Tim Meyer informed the Iron County Zoning Committee that GTac had filed a “Preapplication Notification” with the DNR earlier that day.
Hurley lawyer Anthony Stella Jr. explains the implications of Gtac applying for a permit before the new zoning ordinances are put into place.
