Clear & Present Danger: Protect Minnesota from Sulfide Mining
When: Saturday, April 27, 2019 at 2:15 PM – 3:15 PM
Where: Herbert M. Hanson Hall, 1925 S 4th St, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55454
Why: Minnesota’s proposed first sulfide mine, the PolyMet NorthMet copper-nickel mine, has received a number of permits, which are now being challenged in court as illegal and unsafe.
During the bi-annual Midwest Mountaineering Outdoor Adventure Expo, come hear Paula Maccabee, WaterLegacy’s attorney and advocacy director, explain the latest developments related to the PolyMet mine, the science that makes sulfide mining so dangerous, and the breakdown of regulatory oversight that has put Minnesota’s Lake superior watersheds in such jeopardy.
