Mining in Minnesota

Per the Mining Truth Organization: “PolyMet is the first of a series of proposed mines [copper-nickel] that could reshape Minnesota’s landscape and change our state forever.  The next few months will determine what Minnesota will look like 500 years from now. We need your support to ensure that we pass on clean water to future generations, instead of centuries of water pollution.”
