PolyMet, Forest Service to swap land

PolyMet, the company that wants to mine copper and nickel from the Iron Range, is swapping land with the U.S. Forest Service.

The Associated Press:

The U.S. Forest Service on Monday signed off on a proposed land swap with PolyMet Mining. The deal exchanges 6,650 acres of federal land in the Superior National Forest that PolyMet needs for about the same amount of privately owned land within the forest.

But Executive Director Paul Danicic of the Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness says no exchange of land “can undo the damage” that PolyMet would do to the area.
