Mining for public and state approval : corporative strategies for metallic sulfide mining on Michigan's Yellow Dog Plains by Teresa A Bertossi( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Michigan has become a frontier for metallic sulfide mining due to a high global demand for minerals and a major concentration of sulfide deposits found throughout its Midcontinent Rift. Metallic sulfide mining is challenging, especially in a water-rich state like Michigan. The disturbance of a sulfide deposit during mining activity exposes the sulfide ore to air and water, which can result in sulfuric acid. Subsequently, precipitation can cause sulfuric acid to drain from the mine site, polluting surface water and groundwater. Recently, a corporation called Kennecott Minerals has proposed a metallic sulfide mine called the Eagle Project in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, on the Yellow Dog Plains. The Eagle project will be the first under Michigan's new legislation regulating nonferrous metallic sulfide mining. This research examines the environmental and resulting social consequences of sulfide mining. As opposition to mining projects grow more powerful around the world, mining corporations are using public relations strategies to stifle the opposition. So far, Kennecott has used public relations strategies such as extensive mineral exploration and leasing, negotiation, risk assessment, and persuasive rhetoric to gain state approval for its Eagle Project
