News Tribune, June 18, 1973 Local government leaders yesterday were briefed on concentrations of asbestos fibers in Lake Superior water supplies and government efforts to determine whether the fibers constitute a valid health threat. The fibers are believed to come from Reserve Mining Co.’s taconite plant in Silver Bay.
