STEPHENSON, Mich. Dec. 18, 2017 – Aquila Resources today issued the following statement from Chantae Lessard, director social performance and engagement, in response to the recent passage of Wisconsin Assembly Bill 499.

“We applaud Governor Walker and GOP leaders for driving the change to ensure mining companies can invest in exploration activities in Wisconsin. The ‘Mining for America’ bill will benefit the region with jobs and economic investment. While we do have early-stage assets in Marathon and Taylor counties in Wisconsin, it’s far too early to know if these resources will develop into mines. We may conduct exploration activities at these sites in late 2018. Our focus remains on developing the Back Forty Mine in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula”.
