DNR – State Launches PolyMet Permitting Portal

Minnesota Department of Natural Resources header

The State has launched a web portal dedicated to Minnesota’s permitting process for PolyMet’s proposed NorthMet mining project at www.mn.gov/polymet. This project is very complex and it would need permits from several state agencies in order to proceed. The web portal provides basic permitting information and directs users to agency websites with more detail.


If you would like to receive updates on the permitting processes you must take action: Go to www.mn.gov/polymet and sign up with your email address. 


If you have been receiving updates on the PolyMet environmental review process please note you will no longer receive updates from that list. You must sign up again at www.mn.gov/polymet in order to receive future information on PolyMet permitting.


As a reminder, the DNR will host a permitting processes public informational meeting on April 19, 2016 at Mesabi East High School in Aurora, MN.
