Public Meeting Planned in Marquette on Kennecott Eagle Project

The Department of Environmental Quality will hold a public meeting in
Marquette on Thursday, August 4, to discuss tentative plans for a potential
new underground mine in Marquette County.  This informational meeting will
be held from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the University Center Building on the
campus of Northern Michigan University.  

The public meeting will provide interested citizens with an opportunity to
learn about Kennecott's tentative plans for a nickel-copper mine at the
Eagle Project site located about 30 miles northwest of Marquette, and how a
new mine proposal would be evaluated under environmental laws.  Citizens
will have an opportunity to voice any concerns and recommendations they may
have.  Representatives of the DEQ, the Department of Natural Resources, and
Kennecott will be present to provide information and answer questions. 

The DEQ is sponsoring this meeting to promote open and frank communication
with citizens and interest groups.  For additional information on the public
meeting, please contact Joe Maki of the DEQ, at (906) 346-8563.
