The Senate committee overseeing mining voted 3-2 to approve a Republican bill that would end Wisconsin’s sulfide mining moratorium. The 1998 legislation requires companies seeking to mine sulfide ores such as copper, zinc and gold to prove similar North American mines had operated for 10 years and been closed for 10 years without causing pollution. > Wisconsin Public Radio
