MADISON, Wis. (WSAU) -- The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has confirmed that the Gogebic Taconite mining company won't need an air pollution permit to gather 4,000 tons of rock for testing.

In a letter released Tuesday, the DNR air management department granted Gogebic’s permit exemption, but they will have to monitor emissions and keep records of any air emissions including dust when they dig up four thousand tons of rock for mineral testing.

That doesn’t mean the mining company is done with permit applications. The Department of Natural Resources is reviewing Gogebic’s stormwater permit application for the sampling efforts.
