Emily Manganese Open House Saturday

Crow Wing Power plans a demonstration project in November on its plan to remove manganese from a vein in Emily.

Spokesperson Char Kinzer tells KLKS news, a so-called "Borehole" technique will be used.  She says they will use water to extract the mineral, claimed to be the most environmentally friendly way to do it. 

Kinzer says, there will be an open house for the public 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the site located a mile north of the Emily business district.

The manganese site sits 400 feet below the surface on a five acre parcel.  It is expected to take five years to remove 20 to 30 thousand tons of ore. 

When the project is complete, the site will be restored, and turned over to the city of Emily for a park.
