DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - The first of three public meetings on the PolyMet Mining proposal for a copper nickel mine in northeastern Minnesota will be held at the DECC in Duluth on Thursday.  The public is invited to learn more about the potential environmental effects of the proposed mine in the Hoyt Lakes and Babbitt area and those attending will also be able to offer their comments on the Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement.  The meeting begins at 5 p-m with an open house hosted by the Minnesota D-N-R, the U-S Army Corps of Engineers and the U-S Forest Service.  Other similar meetings will be held later this month in Aurora and St. Paul.
