On Oct. 5, 2011, mineral exploration under land privately owned by Minnesotans was delayed. The DNR had approved exploration leases last spring but the Governor and others postponed action for yet another six months to review the state’s mining policies. Homeowners of the private land have raised a loud outcry against the exploration, thus bringing much media and now governmental attention and action to their plight. FULL STORY HERE.
