    Re: Polymet Mining

    Looks like the key obstacle to the mine moving forward has just been resolved:

    PolyMet land swap with Forest Service to close June 28

    "...PolyMet Mining Co. this morning said it has received notice from the U.S. Forest Service that the land exchange for the company's proposed mine north of Hoyt Lakes will officially close June 28, giving PolyMet title to the mine site..."

    "...
    Meanwhile, PolyMet is awaiting state and federal permits to build and operate the mine and processing center at the site of the former LTV Steel Mining taconite plant.The company also must secure nearly $1 billion to build the project..."

    Glencore will likely buyout once the permits are granted. From what I recall, permits were basically awaiting the land exchange (JQP).

    BREAKING: Minnesota DNR approves permits for proposed PolyMet NorthMet project

    ST. PAUL, MN – The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources announced Thursday its approval for several major permits for the PolyMet mining project on the Iron Range.
    They include the permit to mine, six water appropriation permits, two dam safety permits, a public waters work permit, and an endangered species takings permit for the NorthMet project.
    The permit to mine includes a financial assurance plan and wetland replacement plan.
    Thursday’s announcement means PolyMet has completed its decision making process on the permit applications.
    The project still requires water and air quality permits from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency and a wetlands permit from the Army Corps of Engineers, in addition to other local permits and approvals.
    PolyMet President and CEO Jon Cherry issued the following statement after the permits were issued:
    “We look forward to building and operating a modern mine and developing the minerals that sustain and enhance our modern world. Responsibly developing these strategic minerals in compliance with these permits while protecting Minnesota’s natural resources is our top priority as we move forward.”
    Cherry went on to say the permit “is a victory for Iron Range families who have steadfastly supported us and who depend on and will benefit from the hundreds of jobs that construction and operations will create adn support for years to come. This certainty will also allow the company to move forward with financing and final engineering designs.”
    PolyMet is looking to be the first to have a copper and nickel mine, in addition to platinum, palladium, gold and cobalt, on the Iron Range.
    Before the permit to mine was issued, PolyMet provided $74 million in financial assurance for the construction phase of the project, which is expected to last about two years.
    Environmentalists have opposed the mine for fear it could pollute pristine waters.
    PolyMet says it can operate the proposed mine near Hoyt Lakes and Babbitt without harming the environment while creating hundreds of badly needed jobs on Minnesota’s Iron Range.
    More information on the mining project can be found here.
    We will provide a live stream of a news conference with the Minnesota DNR at 1 p.m.
    This is a breaking story, and we will have more details as they become available.
