Wisconsin is one of the five states that produce nearly 2/3 of the nation's silica. As of , Wisconsin, along with other northern states, is facing an industrial mining boom, being dubbed the "sand rush" because of the new demand from large oilpanies for silica sand. According to Minnesota Public Radio, "One of the industry's major players, U.S. Silica, says its frac sand sales nearly doubled from to , from $36 million to $70 million in and brought in nearly $70 million in just the first nine months of ."[12] According to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR), there are currently 34 active mines and 25 mines in development in Wisconsin. In , the WDNR released a final report on the silica sand mining in Wisconsin titled Silica Sand Mining in Wisconsin. The recent boom in silica sand mining has caused concern from residents in Wisconsin that include quality of life issues and the threat of silicosis. However, these are issues that the state has no authority to regulate. According to the WDNR () these issues include noise, lights, hours of operation, damage and excessive wear to roads from trucking traffic, public safety concerns from the volume of truck traffic, possible damage and annoyance resulting from blasting, and concerns regarding aesthetics and land use changes. Gravity and magnetic separation are used to produce concentrate which was pumped through pipelines to an offshore buoy for loading into specially designed ships. The Wa

Wisconsin's Iron Mining Law of 2013 Explained-Part III
Wisconsin's Act I Iron Mine Law, passed in early 2013, radically changed environmental law in Wisconsin. The law was written by and for Gogebic Taconite Company, to serve its interests for mining iron in the Penokee Mountain Range in northern Wisconsin. The law weakens many long-standing environmental regulations and is in violation of the 165-year-old Wisconsin Public Doctrine. Al Gedicks, Executive Secretary of the Wisconsin Rsources Protection Council, and Dave Blouin, mining commitee chair for the Sierra Club, explain the law and its implications in this three-part program.

Wisconsin's mining standoff | Fault Lines
Environmentalists align with local tribes to stop the development of an open-pit taconite mine in the Penokee Mountains. A proposal to dig what could be one of North America's largest open pit iron mines in northern Wisconsin pits corporate interests against a coalition of tribes and local residents. This mine is totally different than the underground mines. This mine totally destroys the area. A resident On March 11, 2013, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker signed legislation that rewrote the state's iron mining laws, paving the way for Gogebic Taconite (GTAC) to dig a $1.5bn open-pit mine in the pristine woods of the Penokee mountain range. The mine, which could eventually reach 35km (22 miles) in length, provoked an immediate standoff. On one side is GTAC and its supporters anxious for jobs in an area with unemployment double the national average. On the other stand the tribes, residents, and political leaders intent on preserving the land and protecting the water from contamination. Fault Lines follows the unfolding battle on the ground and traces the way money and power have influenced the laws that will determine whether and how this mine gets built.

EMDs in Minnesota's Iron Ore Country preview
In this show, we will cover CN's former DM&IR ore lines in northeastern Minnesota, along with a sampling of Northshore Mining and BNSF operations in the area. What draws fans to Minnesota's north woods and the shores of Lake Superior isn't just the beautiful country or the interesting iron ore operations, it's the motive power used to pull trains through this unique region. EMD is king here, and we document these fine machines as they thunder across CN's Missabe, Minntac, Iron Range, and Two Harbors Subdivisions. We also follow Northshore Mining's mainline between Silver Bay and Babbitt, Minnesota, exploring some remote areas of Minnesota's Arrowhead. You'll see NSM's older SD40-3s, as well as leased SD90MACs hauling raw taconite ore and tailings trains across the railroad. BNSF's Kelly Lake and Grand Rapids locals are also briefly covered, powered by pairs of SD40-2s. With GE power slowly being equipped with straight air for ore service on the former Missabe, we made it our goal to bring you the best of EMD-powered trains in the Northland before it was too late. Many SD40 and SD40-2 variants are seen in operation, along with a brief look at Missabe SD38 and SD38-2 locomotives. Rebuilt SD45T-2 tunnel motors in CN, B&LE, and DM&IR paint steal the show!

Labor to Dems: Pass the Mining Bill Now
MacIver News Service | March 6, 2012 [Madison, Wisc...] Hundreds of Representatives of several building trade unions gathered at the Wisconsin state Capitol Tuesday in support of efforts to modernize the permitting process for Iron Ore mines in the state. Their support came in the wake of a pledge by Gogebic Taconite, the operators of a proposed mine in Iron and Ashland counties, who signed agreements to use unionized labor force to construct and operate the mine. The sudden and strong support of Big Labor for Assembly Bill 426 ratchets up the pressure on Senate Democrats. Until today, they had been unanimous in their opposition to the proposal. With long-time moderate GOP Senator Dale Schultz opposed to the mining bill, proponents need to pick up at least on Democrat Senator in order for the bill to pass. Organizers of the rally estimate between four and five hundred laborers flooded Capitol offices at the conclusion of the noontime rally. They gathered in the rotunda and proceeded in search of one Democrat to vote for a bill supporters say could lead to thousands of jobs both at the mine site, and at manufacturers throughout the state.

Protesters delay bus tour to protest frac sand mining
They hopped on a tour bus to spread a message. The problem was it wasn't their bus. At about 7:15 a.m. Wednesday, a coach bus pulled into the parking lot at the Earle Brown Heritage Center to take participants of an informational silica sand conference on a tour of sand mines in western Wisconsin. Before riders could get on, seven protesters climbed to the roof of the bus and refused to move. The group was protesting the growth of industrial silica sand mining in Wisconsin and southeastern Minnesota. This type of sand is ideal for use in hydrofracking, a technique in which a pressurized mixture of water, sand and chemicals is injected into rock formations to keep cracks open. Natural gas is extracted from those cracks. Activists from southern Minnesota and Iowa said they tried to prevent the tour to highlight environmental and health risks of sand mining. Jake Olzen of Lake City said he has concerns about how groundwater might be affected by runoff from the sediment. He said he also worries about chemicals used in the process. "The silica sand dust, it's a carcinogen that can cause silicosis," said Olzen. "And if you go into towns like Winona, the dust flies off of the trucks that come barreling through. In Winona there are hundreds of trucks a day and it just coats roads and cars." According to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency's website, health and DNR officials in Minnesota and Wisconsin don't have enough data yet to determine exactly what health risks frac sand mining pose to the public. Researchers at the University of Minnesota-Duluth organized the conference with the Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration. They said the conference was designed as an educational event to inform the public about sand mining as Minnesota and Wisconsin experience the rush to expand and develop sand mines for the purpose of hydrofracking. The silica sand mine bus tour was the finale of a three-day informational silica sand conference at the Earle Brown Heritage Center. About 60 protesters gathered in front of the center for the first day of the conference Monday. Brooklyn Center police said they were well-behaved and no one was arrested that day. Police say Wednesday's protesters were cooperative and came down after about an hour. "All they wanted was to get their message out," said Brooklyn Park Police Commander Tim Gannon. 'Then, once a ladder was brought up, we informed them that they would be arrested because of the assembly and also the trespass and they said that was fine and that they would come down willingly. UMD researcher and geology professor Jim Miller said the conference was open to the public and anyone could have attended as long as they paid the registration fee. Conference attendees included engineers and other people on the industry side, as well as people from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, University of Wisconsin-River Falls and Winona State. Miller told 12 News he admires the protesters' passion about the earth. "I'm passionate about the earth, too," said Miller. "But I realize that, as a geologist, I understand how we use the earth for everyday lives."

Wisconsin & Michigan Memories
From the 8 mm films of Arthur E. Paris, C. Vision Productions presents "Wisconsin & Michigan Memories", a collage of vintage railroading in Northeastern Wisconsin and Michigan's Upper Peninsula. From the late 1960's through the 1980's, Art spent countless hours documenting the Milwaukee Road, Chicago & North Western and the Green Bay & Western. Art filmed most of his work in his hometown of Marinette, Wisconsin and twin city, Menominee, Michigan. He also ventured out into the surrounding countryside. Scenes from Green Bay, Oconto, Peshtigo, and Crivitz, WI, along with Iron Mountain, Channing, Gladstone, and Stephenson, MI are included. The Milwaukee Road F-7's and GP-9's held down the rails here, with SW-1's and FM H10-44's handling the local switching chores. A few scenes from the Soo Line in the U.P. of Michigan are also featured. Come along as we follow the C&NW's Shoreland and Valley "400's" pulled by E units and freight trains being handled by the H16-66 "Baby Trainmasters", GP-30's, and the GP-35/F-3 slug/GP-35 lash-ups. Plenty of GP-7's and former KATY AS-16M Baldwins are included. Transitioning through the years, the Alco C-628's arrive on the scene. Rounding out this DVD are the Green Bay & Western Alco's at Green Bay, resplendent in their red and gray scheme. Now sit back, return to a nostalgic time, and enjoy railroading as it once was in a part of the Upper Midwest that had been rarely documented.
