Peace, Madeline Date: Mon, 2 Feb 2015 16:29:01 -0600 From: reply [at] conservationminnesota.org To: madeline-mpls [at] msn.com Subject: ICYMI: Ask the right questions Conservation Minnesota Dear Madeline, Tomorrow, we would love for you to join us at the Minnesota House Mining and Outdoor Recreation Committee hearing to make sure our legislators ask the right, tough questions about the proposed sulfide mines in our state. The Committee will meet from 2:45 - 4:30 PM in Room 10 of the Minnesota State Office Building (100 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., St. Paul, MN 55155). We suggest you come 30-60 minutes early to ensure you get a seat. Please register HERE. Sincerely, Paul Austin Paul Danicic Scott Strand Donate | Visit Us Online Dear Madeline, Will you make sure our legislators ask the right questions about proposed sulfide mines in Northern Minnesota? Click HERE to register! Help us ensure the Minnesota Legislature asks the right questions next Tuesday during their informational hearing on copper-nickel sulfide mine proposals like PolyMet and Twin Metals. Can you attend the hearing? It's critical that we show our elected officials that Minnesotans are concerned about the impact of sulfide mine proposals on Minnesota's land, water, and way of life. Minnesotans deserve an answer on the following before this new type of mine is allowed to go forward: How will state officials and the mining companies prevent a Mount Polley disaster from happening in Minnesota? What has the DNR done to address over 58,000 comments on the PolyMet proposal? What will the DNR and other agencies do to protect Lake Superior and the Boundary Waters from water pollution from this new type of mining? How much money will Polymet be required to provide as a Damage Deposit? Will the state ensure an entirely independent review with outside experts before the permit is granted to make sure that the specifications for the building of the tailings dam is adequate? The Mining and Outdoor Recreation Committee has invited companies that want to mine sulfide ore in Northern Minnesota to testify and we must ensure the voices of Minnesotans are heard too. Will you join? Event Details: WHO: You and everybody you know who has questions or is concerned about sulfide mining WHAT: Informational hearing on sulfide mining at the Minnesota Capitol WHEN: 2:45 – 4:30 PM, Tuesday February 3rd. We expect that the room will fill, so please arrive 30-60 minutes early to ensure you get a seat. WHERE: Room 10, Minnesota State Office Building (100 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, St. Paul, Minnesota 55155.) WHY: To show the depth of concern Minnesotans have about the impact of sulfide mining on our state Thanks for all you do to protect Minnesota from sulfide mining pollution.
