The Kewaunee County Board last week approved a resolution encouraging local, state and federal authorities to make sure the Back Forty Mine adheres to all environmental standards.

Kewaunee had been the only county with shoreline along Green Bay – although with only about three miles along the bay from Dyckesville to the Door-Kewaunee County line – not to take a stand with regard to the proposed zinc and copper mine along the Michigan side of the Menominee River.

Most counties came out in opposition to building the mine, which opponents say would jeopardize the river that forms part of the border between Wisconsin and Michigan, as well as the bay and lake it flows into.

But the Kewaunee County resolution simply “encourages leaders at the local, state and federal level to take every appropriate action to ensure the Back Forty Project adheres to all federal, state and local requirements to protect the environment, natural resources and public health.”

The County Board passed the resolution unanimously and without discussion. The minutes of the June 13 Personnel, Advisory and Legislative Committee indicate that Chairman Robert Weidner suggested “a resolution to not oppose the mine but to support that all regulations be complied with any mine.”

Aquila Resources Inc. recently acquired the fourth and final permit from the state of Michigan required to move forward with the project, although the Menominee Tribe is continuing with a federal court challenge of the mine.
