A 2,169-page review of how PolyMet Mining Corp. plans to open Minnesota’s first copper mine and abide by all state and federal environmental laws went public Friday after years of behind-the-scenes drafting.
A Canadian National Railway train filled with iron ore pellets from the Iron Range derailed in Two Harbors early Thursday afternoon, and two injuries were reported, Lake County Sheriff Carey Johnson said.
