Mining meeting scheduled in Duluth

People with questions on proposed copper mining in Northeastern Minnesota may be able to get answers Wednesday night at Concordia Lutheran Church in Duluth.

The event includes some of the biggest players in the mining debate, including Brad Moore, a vice president for PolyMet Mining. Co.; state Rep. Alice Hausman, DFL-St. Paul; Larry Kramka, director of the Lands and Minerals Division of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources; and Scott Strand, executive director of Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy.

The Duluth McCabe Chapter of the Izaak Walton League of America is sponsoring the event, which was moved to the larger church when the group’s usual meeting site, Hartley Nature Center, appeared too small to handle the expected crowd.
