Biden admin revokes Twin Metals lease to mine in Superior National Forest


“President Joe Biden’s administration has reinstated a moratorium on renewed leases for Twin Metals to mine in northeastern Minnesota’s Superior National Forest.  The Obama administration was the first to decline a renewed lease, but the Trump administration revoked this move and approved a lease in 2019 that allowed Twin Metals to develop a copper-nickel mine in the town of Ely.  But in the continuation of his broken promises on mining, Biden has followed in the footsteps of his former boss.
