MADISON, Wis. (WSAU) - The Department of Natural Resources comment period for the pre-application phase of a proposed mine has been extended.

DNR Waste and Materials Management Director Ann Coakley said they received a lot of comments about about the bulk sampling and about mining in general, but not so many about the pre-application... which is one of the first steps in getting an actual mining permit.

Coakley believes people didn’t realize the deadline that passed this week was for the pre-application notice. She says she wants to make sure people have an opportunity to be heard on that topic.

The DNR has extended the comment period on the pre-application to September 17th.
