The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has approved Gogebic Taconite's renewal requests for two exploratory drilling licenses, according to a release from the agency.

The DNR initially issued the first exploration license May 30, 2013 for the drilling of eight holes. The agency said they issued the second license January 16, 2014, authorizing the drilling of another 15 holes.

The renewal of the second license allows to drill six more exploration holes, said the DNR.

The DNR also granted stormwater permit coverage for road improvements on an existing road that will be used to access the drill sites.

GTac has proposed exploration in a four-mile area located east of Mellen in northwestern Wisconsin.
