Proposed Zinc and Copper Mine, Crandon, Wisconsin

Proposed Metallics Sulfide Mine

The Crandon mine was a proposed metallic sulfide mine to be located near the town of Crandon, Wisconsin and the Mole Lake Ojibwe Reservation.

McDonald Morrissey Associates provided a review of groundwater modeling completed by the Crandon Mining Company as part of their application to create a zinc and copper mine.

Prior to receiving a permit, the mining company was required to establish that water in all surface-water bodies would be preserved at levels that protect specific commercial and recreational uses and that groundwater moving from the mine site meet water quality standards set by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
