Public comment period open for proposed PolyMet copper-nickel mine

Posted: Updated:
ST. PAUL, MN -

The Minnesota DNR has opened a 30 day public comment period on permits for PolyMet's proposed copper-nickel mine.

The DNR released six draft water appropriation permits for public review and comment.

Polymet submitted the permit applications last year, and the DNR says it has finished its review of the applications, but is now looking for public comment before making any final decisions.

Polymet says it expects the state to release the remaining permits for public review later this summer and fall.

Comment may be submitted until September 13th.
