PolyMet Mining announces the completion of key milestones in the environmental review of its 100%-owned copper-nickel-precious metals project located in the established mining district of the Mesabi Iron Range in northeastern Minnesota. "I am very pleased by the considerable progress made by the permitting team in recent months," stated Jon Cherry, president and CEO of PolyMet. "Completion of engineering control design, numeric model design and model inputs enables PolyMet to demonstrate that the NorthMet Project meets state and federal air and water standards, which provides the foundation for completion of the environmental review leading to issuance of permits." Cherry concluded, "The final steps to completing the supplemental draft EIS for public review are to incorporate the model results and receive comments from the EPA and other cooperating and government agencies."
