ASHLAND, WI (WTAQ) - Gogebic Taconite President Bill Williams is facing charges in Spain for allegedly violating environmental laws in that country.

Gogebic Taconite is the company looking to mine iron ore in northern Wisconsin.

According to the charge, Williams and two others are accused of polluting groundwater at a copper mine in southern Spain, as well as mismanaging the mine site.

Williams’ attorneys believe he and the two accused will be cleared of any wrongdoing.
