Company will be doing mining exploration with helicopters in Taylor, Lincoln and Price counties.

The skies above Lincoln, Price and Taylor counties may have some unfamiliar activity in the coming months as potential mining exploration efforts are conducted by Aquila Resources.

Representatives from the three counties met in Medford on Monday with representatives from Aquila Resources, a Toronto base development stage company that will be conducting the operations. Already established with several other mining projects in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Aquila owns property and mineral lease rights in both Taylor and Marathon County that first were acquired in 2011.

The Bend Project in Taylor County is a volcanogenic massive sulfide occurrence containing copper and gold. The ecological uniqueness of this area of Wisconsin is known to be rich in copper, gold and silver, in what is known as the Penokean Volcanic Belt.

There is no guarantee that an operating mine will be built in the end of the exploratory process that can take decades.
