With the passage of 2017 Wisconsin Act 134, towns may see new (or renewed) interest in nonferrous metallic mining in their area. Many towns have questions about what the recent law changes mean and they wonder what sort of regulatory options are available for addressing local concerns. In an effort to answer common town official questions and provide some best practices for developing any regulatory framework a town may choose to create, WTA is providing the “Nonferrous Metallic Mining Handbook” available at the link below. Remember that the moratorium on nonferrous metallic mining expires on July 1, 2018. As a result, we encourage town officials to read the handbook and consult with their town attorneys for advice on which regulatory options, if any, will best suit their town’s needs.
