Reader's view: Public will pay for any PolyMet cleanup
Mark Twain was once quoted stating that a mine was “a hole in the ground owned by a liar.”
It seems to me PolyMet Mining has a problem getting financing.
PolyMet’s deep-pocketed partner, the Anglo-Swiss mining giant Glencore Xstrata, owns
29 percent of the company and I fear would be shielded from cleanup liability.
