the back forty mine

The Back Forty Mine is a proposed gold and zinc mine located in Menominee County in the South Central part of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The mine is estimated to produce 692 thousand ounces of gold, 801 million pounds of zinc, 86 million pounds of copper, 6.26 million ounces of silver, and 26 million pounds of lead during operations.

We will safely construct, operate, and eventually close the Back Forty Mine. We promise to provide domestic minerals, create new jobs, and boost the local economy, all while protecting the environment.
