NorthMet Mining and Land Exchange Final Environmental Impact Statement (Final EIS)
State and federal environmental review of the proposed PolyMet Mining Inc. project
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources as Responsible Governmental Unit is charged with determining the adequacy of the Final EIS for the proposed NorthMet Mining Project and Land Exchange.
The DNR has determined that the Final EIS for the proposed NorthMet Mining Project and Land Exchange is adequate.
The adequacy determination marks the end of the state Environmental Impact Statement process under the Minnesota Environmental Policy Act, but it does not mean the NorthMet project has been approved or may proceed to construction. Additional environmental analysis and evaluation will occur upon receipt of permit applications.
