Glad to hear that there are more jobs available in Michigan. Our family used to live in that area years ago, and there were not many jobs to choose from, which is why we moved back down to lower Michigan. We still have family in Marquette County who have been struggling. Hopefuly if the mine is encouraging work, others will fallow. All in all, its a relief to know that steps forward are being made.

Nice to hear about this....Loved the fact that the AuSable area drilling court case didn't even get a whisper of a mention.

Do you know how to apply for a job? I heard the mine was in Palmer. True?

well ya. but everyone opposes the opening of a new mine up in the yellow dog plains. that could generate $3 billion in mining revenue. and would be the first in a series of mining ventures to mine some $30-$60 billion from UP mineral rich areas.
