Lundin Mining has now scheduled public tours of the Eagle Mine located in Michigamme Township.
Now through the beginning of October, a number of tours will be taking place of the surface facilities at the mine. Tours depart from and return to the Eagle Mine information center on Washington Street in Marquette. Participants should be prepared to walk about a half mile during the tour.
"On the way up, we give tour participants a history of the mine, and a sense of what's going on currently up at the mine and the mill," said Dan Blondeau, Lundin Media Relations. "Then, once we're on site, we do a tour on the bus around the site, and then we would visit the various facilities."
Tours are offered from 1 to 5 p.m. Fridays and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. The dates are August 2, 3, 9, 16, 17, and 23 and September 6, 13, 20, and 27 and October 1. To register, visit the information center or call (906) 273-1550.
