What metals will PolyMet mine and what are they used for?
July 26, 2017
Dear Zenith News:
I’m curious about learning more about your perspective on the PolyMet deal [“Land Swap,” July 4, 2017]. It would interest this observer to know your perspectives on specifically what the minerals mined are for and what they have been used for specifically. Loved the article, thank you for all you do.

Jennifer Martin-Romme replies: Thanks for your letter, Ms. Allen! PolyMet wants to mine the NorthMet ore deposit for mostly copper and nickel. To a lesser extent, they’ll mine for cobalt, platinum, palladium, silver, and gold.
