Experts take to the field to see if iron mine can pass muster
Town of Anderson — Sara Viernum scooped up a small frog as it jumped across a muddy Iron County logging road in a hilltop forest that could one day become the site of a massive open pit mine. "They're everywhere," she said, smiling as she held a spring peeper in the palm of her hand. The tiny frog survives in winter in a near-frozen state until it emerges in spring. Viernum, a specialist in amphibians and reptiles, is part of a small army of experts employed by the mine's developers, Florida-based Gogebic Taconite. The group is conducting wide-ranging field studies this spring in a section of Iron and Ashland counties where the mine would be built.
