Learn about how sulfide mining could affect the BWCA

Editor’s note: This meeting described below has been rescheduled to Monday, Jan. 27, at the library from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

You will have an opportunity to hear about how the extraction of copper and nickel (sulfide mining) in the BWCA and Lake Superior watersheds will impact the wetland and forest ecosystems in northern Minnesota on Monday, Jan. 6, at the St. Anthony Park Library, from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

A representative from the Friends of the BWCA, as well as a retired miner who lives adjacent to the area where mines are being

proposed, will be present. If one mine is permitted, it opens the door to the other mining corporations already waiting in line for this type of hard rock mining.

Please come to the St. Anthony Park Library for the discussion and a chance to have your questions answered. We can make our opinions heard now during the public comment period before decisions are made by state and federal agencies.

Margot Monson, St. Anthony Park
