This data layer indicates the location of historic and active mining infrastructure associated with iron mines in the Mesabi Iron Range. It was developed by the Natural Resources Research Institute by compiling data from multiple sources. It provides locations of infrastructure (haul roads, plant & shop areas, settling basins, etc.) associated with active taconite mines. This information is important in land use planning.
