Minnesota appeals court rejects permits for controversial mine near Boundary Waters Canoe Wilderness

A Minnesota appeals court ruled on Monday against two permits issued by the state allowing a mining company to construct a copper-nickel mine in the northeastern part of the state.

The Washington Post reported that the Minnesota Court of Appeals rejected two permits for the PolyMet Mining Corporation issued by the state's Department of Natural Resources, finding that the state did not enter a proper review period to consider environmental damage and failed to set a fixed term on the permit.
