To the editor:
Reading the Dec. 3 Daily Mining Gazette article written by Garrett Neese pertaining to the proposed Copperwood Mine, there is a statement attributed to Dave Anderson, a representative of Orvana Resources. The statement reads "The water at the shoreline (of Lake Superior) is brackish and undrinkable." Brackish means salty. I think the statement calls for explanation, or is the largest freshwater lake in the world a thing of the past.
