PolyMet Issues Come to State Capitol

Issues surrounding PolyMet Mining Company’s proposed copper-nickel and precious metals mining operation near Babbitt, reached the Minnesota state capitol yesterday at a hearing of the Senate Environment and Natural Resources Committee.

Minnesota Public Radio covered the hearing HERE.

Debate at the capitol centers on whether or not financial assurance regulations for non-ferrous mines — many of which have histories of significant environmental problems — should be strengthened in Minnesota.
