Police say package left near Gogebic Taconite is not bomb


HURLEY, Wis. (WSAU) - Hurley Police say a suspicious backpack left near the Gogebic Taconite office did not contain explosives.

The company’s president was called yesterday morning at about 11 a.m. to ask if he had left a backpack and he said he hadn’t. The area was roped off and the bomb squad was called. When it was discovered there was no bomb in the backpack, the area was reopened at about 4 p.m.

Gogebic Taconite wants to build a controversial iron ore mine in the region near the Bad River Chippewa reservation. The tribe and conservations are against the plan, saying it could pollute waters there. Supporters say the region needs the jobs.
