File - In this Sept. 1996, file photo, the Flambeau open pit copper mine is viewed in Ladysmith, Wis. Local governments in the state are looking to enact their own mining regulations as Gov. Scott Walker prepares to lift Wisconsin's nearly 20-year ban on gold and silver mining, saying they want to protect the environment and make sure taxpayers don't have to clean up any potential damage.
