Hibbing Taconite mine tours open summer Thursdays

The Minnesota Discovery Center will once again be coordinating tours of Hibbing Taconite during the summer. Anyone making a trip up to the Iron Range who hasn’t seen a modern taconite operation should check this out.

Cost for the tour is $5 per person. No photographs allowed while on Hibbing Taconite property. Small children (under 10) not allowed. Experience mining on the Iron Range.
