Stauber Statement on Minnesota DNR Issuing Polymet’s Permits to Mine

HERMANTOWN – Pete Stauber released the following statement in response to the news that the Minnesota DNR issued the permits to mine for the Polymet Copper-Nickel Mine. 

“I am extremely pleased to hear that after 14 years, Polymet has finally been issued its permits to mine copper nickel. I am the only candidate in this race that supports iron-ore mining, copper-nickel mining and Enbridge Line 3 and as I did this summer when I worked with President Trump to reverse the mining ban, I will continue to advocate to bring good paying mining jobs back to Minnesota. We can do both: mine and keep our environment clean.”
