Iron Range (Northland's NewsCenter) - If you've driven between Grand Rapids and Ely recently, you may have noticed some signs on residential property and commercial businesses.

The "We Support Mining" signs were created this spring by the Iron Mining Association as a way to show support for the industry.

The Association offers the signs for free to anyone.

Iron Mining Association President, Craig Pagel says after making another delivery of signs to the Iron Range Friday, there are now 1500 in circulation in the region.
