PolyMet's sulfide mine would result in water pollution, mercury contamination of fish, destruction of wetlands and impairment of wild rice. These effects would disproportionately affect Lake Superior Chippewa tribes and low-income families who rely on fishing, hunting and gathering for subsistence. PolyMet’s mine would also result in the release of huge volumes of greenhouse gases and destroy wetlands that sequester carbon, seriously impacting climate resilience.
Help us fight to protect Minnesota clean waters, children’s health and our communities from pollution, injustice and climate change. Sign the petition calling upon the State of Minnesota and the United States governments to deny all permits for the proposed PolyMet NorthMet sulfide mine.
