PolyMet Sulfide Mine: What's at Stake?


The PolyMet copper-nickel mine, Minnesota’s first sulfide mine is pushing for permits by the end of this year. Come to the Fond du Lac Reservation on Wednesday, November 14th from 5:00 to 7:00 pm to hear from WaterLegacy board member Matt Tyler and Fond du Lac Elder and Pipe Carrier Ricky DeFoe about the ecosystems and tribal Treaty resources that are in jeopardy. Learn how you can get involved in protecting the life-giving waters that feed Lake Superior.

Matt and Ricky both canoed to the proposed PolyMet site and will share the short film of their journey. We will have snacks, dialogue, and a specific action you can take to support the Fond du Lac Band in their work to protect water quality on the Reservation, downstream of the proposed PolyMet project.
