(NNCNOW.com)-- Gogebic Taconite plans to drill 13 test holes at a proposed iron ore mining site, near Mellen, Wisconsin, at the end of April.

A company spokesperson says they are working with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to apply for the permits for the test holes.

The spokesperson went on to say that the DNR wants to wait for the snow to melt before test drilling commences.
