Democrat Effort To Stop Controversial Copper-Nickel Mine Could Also Crush Existing Iron Mines

Iron and Copper

“McCollum’s proposed appropriations act will govern how tax money is spent when it comes to regulating and approving environmentally-related projects. One stipulation of the act is to make it clear that “none of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available by this Act may be used to review or approve a mine plan proposed within the Rainy River Watershed of the Superior National Forest.”  While this would successfully prohibit the Twin Metals copper-nickel project, it would also prevent existing iron mines that have already been approved from receiving the requisite approval for future operations.”

Thanks, Alpha News and Congressman Stauber.
