If one wanted to pick a violently controversial issue in the North Shore region of Minnesota, mining and mineral prospecting would be at the top of the list. As someone who lives in the region, this EIS is a demonstration of policies directly relevant to my home, and is why I picked it. “Federal Hardrock Mineral Prospecting Permits” is an EIS originating from 2012 that, like the title of the EIS implies, deals with a request for permits to dig exploratory boreholes in various locations in the Superior National Forest, which would come from the USDA Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
