A Survey About Mining in the Lake Superior Basin

The Lake Superior Binational Forum would like to know your opinions about mining operations in the Lake Superior basin. The purpose of this survey is to help the Forum learn more about the perspectives of those who live in, work in or visit Lake Superior communities in the basin. Your responses will help the Forum make informed recommendations to binational agencies and governments about how to address potential mining impacts.

We use several words in this survey that we would like to define for consistency:

  • Mining:   This refers mainly to active extraction operations, either open pit or underground. Some mining activities can also include exploratory drilling.
  • Damages: This refers to those impacts that can cause substantial, long lasting, or destructive changes that are likely to be expensive and difficult to clean up or fix, especially to the environment. However, damages could also refer to impacts on human health, a community, and economic sustainability.

Our 12 questions will take about 4 to 5 minutes to complete.
