Public will get to weigh in on controversial mining challenge 

The Maine Land Use Planning Fee will maintain a three-day public listening to on a Canadian junior mining firm’s rezoning software for the Pickett Mountain Mining Undertaking, regardless of objections from intervening events.

The LUPC scheduled public hearings on the Wolfden mining challenge for Oct. 16, 17 and 18, at Stearns Jr./Sr. Excessive College,199 State St., Millinocket.

In the course of the pre-public listening to convention in July, the intervenors — together with the Penobscot Nation, Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians, the Pure Sources Council of Maine, the Conservation Legislation Basis and Earthjustice — requested the general public hearings be postponed as a result of Wolfden’s software doesn’t establish the place ore processing and storage amenities shall be situated.
