County Board backs nonferrous

Article from the Mesabi Daily News:


Resolution passes by 4-3 vote; dozens speak

ELY – The St. Louis County Board is on record in support of nonferrous mining, after narrowly approving a resolution for it Tuesday on a 4-3 vote.

But it took a lot of talking to get there.

Quotable Quote: Babbitt Mayor Glenn Anderson spoke in favor, Anderson noting that mining pioneer Peter Mitchell, "when he came up here, wasn't on a tourism trip."

St. Louis County Board support for PolyMet copper mine stalls

St. Louis County Board support for PolyMet copper mine stalls

Article from the Duluth News Tribune: (Summary)


Opponents of the PolyMet copper mine proposed near Hoyt Lakes won what may be a short-lived victory Tuesday when the St. Louis County Board failed to act on a resolution supporting the project.

Commissioner Mike Forsman of Ely vowed to bring a similar resolution to the Committee of the Whole meeting in Ely Dec. 20. Other commissioners said they would work on recrafting the resolution to mitigate some of the concerns raised.
