Mellen, WI (NNCNOW.com) -- Gogebic Taconite plans to do more core sampling at the proposed mine site in Northern Wisconsin.

The company has already drilled 22 holes in the Penokee Hills near Mellen Wisconsin and has expressed interest in drilling more.

Samples from the rock will help the company determine the chemical make-up of the deposit.

D-N-R officials say the company is planning to do the drilling later this summer.

G-Tac will need to fill out another permit application in order to conduct more sampling.

The company has proposed to build an Iron Ore mine near Mellen Wisconsin.
