Geotour: Copper mining waste of Lake Superior Today

Gay, Big Traverse, Buffalo Reef and Torch Lake are sites we will visit and discuss on this field exploration, using both boat and land access. Mining Wastes are actively moving in the Big Lake and more stabilized in inland sites. We will discuss mitigation of hazards and what observations teach us.  Led By Bill Rose and Erika Vye.
