UNDATED (KDAL) - Gogebic Taconite is doing some exploratory drilling for potential mining operations in northern Wisconsin and has hired a security firm to protect their employees and equipment from protesters.  State Senator Bob Jauch of Poplar has sent a letter to the company's president asking that the armed guards be removed.  The guards work for an out of state company called "Bulletproof Security" and have been seen the Penokee Hills area of Iron County dressed in camouflage uniforms and carrying assault style rifles.
