Great News: MN Supreme Court Deals Blow to Anti-Mining Groups’ Hopes of Delaying PolyMet

Last week the Minnesota Supreme Court delivered a major blow to anti-mining groups by declining an appeal to its unanimous May decision that an additional environmental review of the contentious PolyMet copper-nickel mine near Hoyt Lakes is not needed, according to a PolyMet news release.

This is great news for Northeastern Minnesota because environmentally responsible non-ferrous mining promises to be a major engine to the region’s economy, if the anti-mining crowd doesn’t stop it.

The lawsuit asking the Supreme Court to reconsider it’s decision was brought by the Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy and the Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness, both based in the Twin Cities.

Congratulations to PolyMet, and hopefully they are the first of many successful, environmentally-responsible mining operations in Minnesota.
