Wolfden mine listening to, day 2: Air pollution is inevitable

MILLINOCKET, Maine — Metallic mineral mines can seep poisonous supplies from any variety of pure sources, in keeping with knowledgeable testimony through the second day of Maine Land Use Planning Fee public hearings relating to the Pickett Mountain Mission.

Canadian junior mining firm, Wolfden, is searching for LUPC rezoning approval for a 374-acre parcel within the unorganized territory 3.3 miles off Route 11, close to Mt. Chase and Moro Plantation. With out the LUPC’s approval, Wolfden can not apply for a metallic mineral mining allow below Maine’s new strict mining legislation.

An extra public remark interval is slated for six:30 p.m. Oct. 23 on the Cross Insurance coverage Heart, 515 Important St., Bangor.
