(April 10, 2015, St. Paul, Minn.) — During a call press call the afternoon of Monday, April 13, 2015, the Minnesota Environmental Partnership (MEP) will present the findings of a new statewide public opinion poll on sulfide mining in Minnesota. Two sulfide mines have been proposed in Northeastern Minnesota, one near the Boundary Waters, and the other near Lake Superior. Sulfide mining has never been done in Minnesota, and elsewhere it has left environmental and economic disaster. Sulfide mining produces toxic waste that permanently pollutes nearby water, which is why it has never been done safely.
