Read Governor Dayton's letter to Twin Metals Minnesota, in which he shares “... concern is for the inherent risks associated with any mining operation in close proximity to the BWCAW."
Statement from Becky Rom, National Chair of the Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters: “The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness is a national treasure. It is too special to put at risk. This is a clear signal that the lands near the Boundary Waters Wilderness should be off limits to sulfide-ore mining. I’d like to thank the Governor for his strong leadership on this issue."
