Katie Kloth was arraigned in Iron County Court on Friday morning for her role in an anti-mining activists’ raid on a Gogebic Taconite drill exploration site last June in the Penokee Hills.

During the raid, about a dozen masked, black-clad protesters emerged from the woods yelling obscenities and made threats to drill workers and geologists on the scene.

The 27-year-old stands accused of a felony robbery with use of force and misdemeanors for damage to property and theft.
