Nov 1, 2018, 1:04pm EDT
Poly Met Mining, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of PolyMet Mining Corp. (together “PolyMet” or the “company”) TSX: POM; NYSE American: PLM, reports it has received its Permit to Mine from the State of Minnesota, a crucial permit for construction and operation of the NorthMet Project in northeastern Minnesota.
PolyMet’s Permit to Mine is the first non-ferrous mining permit to be issued in the State of Minnesota. The Department of Natural Resources also issued all other permits for which the company has applied including dam safety, water appropriations, takings, and public waters work permits, along with Wetlands Conservation Act approval. These permits were issued after the company demonstrated that its designs meet strict state environmental standards and at the conclusion of an extensive public input process.
