Iron County, Wisconsin renews GTac Lease

On Tuesday February 24th, 2015 the Iron County Board of Supervisors in Northern Wisconsin renewed and amended lease agreement to the so-called Gogebic Taconite (GTAC) Mining Company. The Board after discussion, voted 8-7 in favor of the amended new lease after the company defaulted and was unable to pay the $10,000 annual lease due on January 26th, for the rental of county lands for their tailings and waste disposal site. The proposed Open Pit mining site is in the pristine Bad River and Lake Superior Watershed, and is opposed by all 11 of Wisconsin's tribes. The entire Statement by Iron County Supervisor Joe Pinardi is found at the bottom of this video stack.
