Black Hawk Mining of Canada last month presented to the Maine Land Use Regulatio
Black Hawk Mining of Canada last month presented to the Maine Land Use Regulation Commission a proposal for a gold mine at Bald Mountain in Aroostook County. Geologist John Cummings of Auburn discovered the ore deposit in Township 12 Range 8 in 1977, and it is estimated to contain 36 tons of gold, zinc, silver and copper. Black Hawk, which paid $2 million for the lease on the property and has invested an estimated $16 million in the project, plans to mine only gold and silver. The operation would employ 75 people, have an annual payroll of $3 million, spend $2.4 million for goods and service and last an estimated four years. Details.
