WISCONSIN NEWS ROUND-UP: Trempealeau County committee rejects permit for proposed mine
WHITEHALL - Officials have rejected a proposed mining permit in Trempealeau County, citing environmental concerns as the key reason.
The Environment and Land Use Committee voted down the AllEnergy Silica request, saying the application felt rushed. The proposed 725-acre mine near Arcadia is also near the Trempealeau River and Trout Run Creek. Committee members say more data is needed to ensure mining won’t impact those waterways.
