Eagle Mine Community Perception Survey

Greetings Neighbor,

As a valued resident of the Upper Peninsula, we would like to invite you to participate in the Eagle Mine Community Perception Survey.

Eagle Mine is an underground, nickel and copper mine located in Marquette County near Big Bay and the Humboldt Mill, west of Ishpeming. Eagle mine is Michigan’s first new mine in decades and is permitted under modern regulatory laws. Mining operations began in 2014 and it is expected to produce over 365 million pounds of nickel, and 295 million pounds of copper, and trace amounts of other minerals over its estimated nine-year mine life (2014-2023). The mine currently employs 450 people.

We are asking that you please take 10 minutes out of your busy schedule to complete this survey. Your input will help us to better understand the needs and concerns of our friends and neighbors here in the Upper Peninsula. If you can’t complete the survey in one sitting, you will be able to come back to the link and complete the survey later.

In exchange for your participation in this survey, Eagle Mine will donate to one of the following organizations:

  • Bay Cliff Health Camp: a year-round, therapy and wellness center for children and adults with physical disabilities.
  • Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter: local “no kill” animal shelter.
