McGregor, Minn..• November 18, 2014
 

MCGREGOR, Minn.—The City of McGregor has been without a police officer for over four years. That all changed when Caleb Sorensen took over as the new Police Chief in July of this year.

Caleb has always known that he wanted to help people. It was in 2009 that Caleb made the decision to go into Law Enforcement.

The first drill hole occurred in 2002 and, 12 years later, the company is now on drill hole number 213.

The project is now in the stage identified as advanced exploration and there still is no decision yet about the feasibility of a mine. The key word is still “potential.”

“That is why this project continues today,” said Kennecott Project Manager Martin Sauve. “Management has always believed in this project and we still do today.”

“After 213 holes, we have had some dusters (no mineralization at all), some average drill holes and some very good drill holes,” Martin shared. “This is what has ...
