Larry Lehtinen is the CEO. He said in a statement, "We are extremely pleased to have the Scully Mine restart fully financed and to move forward with hiring the workforce and implementing the various commercial contracts and capital projects to bring the Scully Mine back to life."

According to the press statement, Cargill has made an equity investment and extended its long-term off-take agreement with Tacora, as well.

Tacora plans on hiring 10 people for the Grand Rapids office.
