The PolyMet project protects what is precious while building on the area’s established mining heritage. PolyMet’s project will use modern technologies to meet some of the strictest environmental standards for air, land and water.
With that in mind, three key factors play a role in understanding the importance of this new mining opportunity in northeast Minnesota:
1. Modern technology
Modern mining and water treatment technology allows us to mine in an environmentally responsible way, meeting all state and federal environmental standards. Find out more about the advanced mining technologies we’ll use.
PolyMet’s project is situated within the Duluth Complex, one of the world’s largest undeveloped mineral deposits with unique geology and accessibility. See more about The Duluth Complex.
The world needs these essential metals to build wind turbines, cell phones, diabetes test strips and many other items. The PolyMet mine will help provide these metals. Learn more about worldwide demand for these metals.
These are just a few things to keep in mind about this mining opportunity. Of course, we’ll continue to keep you posted on the PolyMet project.
