Copper-Nickel Studies and Sulfide Mining

A long-awaited, 1800-page supplemental draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) for the proposed PolyMet Mining Project is expected to be released on December 6, 2013. The supplemental DEIS is the culmination of four years of additional research and analysis of the proposed sulfide mine after an earlier draft environmental impact statement was deemed inadequate by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Sulfide mining extracts precious metals including copper and nickel from sulfide ores. Sulfide mining in northern Minnesota has been lauded for its economic benefits for the region by some, but others are highly critical of the potential long-term environmental risks of this type of mining.

Decades before Minnesota's current environmental review of sulfide mining, the state invested millions in researching the issue. The Legislative Reference Library has been steadily digitizing the hundreds of reports that were issued in the late 1970s as part of the Minnesota Regional Copper-Nickel Study.

Links to over 180 reports and an essay about the history of the Copper-Nickel study is available in a library guide, Copper-Nickel Studies and Sulfide Mining.

Please call (651-296-8338) or email (refdesk@lrl.leg.mn) the library if you'd like copies of any of these reports sent to you.
