CHAMPION, MI-- Eagle Mine, LLC is looking to lease more than 15,000 acres of state-owned mineral rights in the U.P. for exploration.
The acreage is in Baraga, Houghton, Iron, and Marquette counties.
Megan Morrison is Eagle’s Social Responsibility Advisor. She says the lease requests are just the first step in a several-step process to begin a formal exploration program.
“Currently there’s no definitive plans to actually begin an exploration process, so our goal is simply just to obtain the leases to be able to consider future options,” she says.
