MN State Supreme Court Denial of Appeal for Supplemental EIS

Better in Our Back Yard (BIOBY) commends the Minnesota State Supreme Court for rightfully declining to hear a petition for additional review of PolyMet’s Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). PolyMet spent over a decade in careful preparation of the EIS, which was published in 2015 by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the U.S. Forest Service and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. 

With this decision, PolyMet can continue project progress – focusing their efforts on maintaining ongoing permit compliance, implementing environmental controls, securing financing, beginning construction and ultimately opening the state’s first copper-nickel-precious metals mine.
