ST. PAUL, MN (KDAL) - A comprehensive environmental analysis of the proposed copper-nickel mine in northeastern Minnesota has been released for public review and comment.  The environmental review process for the PolyMet mining project and land exchange now begins as state and federal agencies take public input on the Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement (SDEIS).  The 2,000 page document can be viewed on the Minnesota DNR website and public meetings are scheduled for January in Duluth, Aurora and St. Paul.  The SDEIS details over 3 years of scientific study and analysis of the project that would be located about 6 miles south of Babbitt and use the former LTV plant in Hoyt Lakes.
