Kennecott Responds Regarding Eagle Rock

To the editor:

The posting on your site regarding Eagle Rock, Michigan (June 21) prompts this clarification of potential interest to your readers.

Kennecott is mindful of the connection Native American communities in the region have with the rock. We are committed to ensuring the rock remains protected from current construction and future mining activities and safely accessible to those who wish to utilize the rock for cultural interests. In fact, the rock will remain protected as it is, as is required by permit conditions governing our project.

We also want to be straightforward about our plans. The tunnel that will be created to enable workers to access the underground mine will start into the ground approximately 100 yards to the west of the rock, not into the rock face itself as the blog and photo caption mischaracterize.

The tunnel will travel under the ground’s surface before reaching the rock, and will travel through the part of the rock that is underground, maintaining the rock’s current above ground condition.

We appreciate the opportunity to provide this clarification, and welcome your questions anytime.

Sincerely,

Daniel Blondeau
Advisor, Communications & Media Relations
Kennecott Eagle Minerals
