TWIN METALS STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO DNR PAUSE ON ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW
St. Paul, Minn., February 15, 2022 – Twin Metals Minnesota is working to determine the next steps to continue to advance our underground copper, nickel, cobalt and platinum group metals project. A pause on the environmental review process is necessary and appropriate while we defend our project and our mineral rights in court.
We remain committed to the communities of northeast Minnesota and to advancing a modern mine that will produce the minerals necessary for combatting climate change, strengthening domestic supply chains and creating American jobs.
