Washington, D.C. – On Friday, U.S. Representative Chip Cravaack (MN) will host the quarterly roundtable discussion on the PolyMet mining project, which would be located on the Mesabi Iron Range in Northeastern Minnesota.  The event will be attended by various representatives from interested parties, including state, tribal, and federal officials.  Following the meeting, Rep. Cravaack will be available to the media. 

WHO:  U.S. Representative Chip Cravaack, serving Minnesota’s Eighth Congressional District 

WHAT:  Q & A dialogue regarding the PolyMet mining project 

WHEN:  Friday, June 15, 2012; 10 a.m. 

WHERE: MPCA Duluth Office | 525 Lake Avenue South | Suite 400 | Duluth, MN 55802 | small conference room 

WHY:  If approved, the mining project will provide a new domestic source of raw materials.  Ultimately, this will lower the United States’ reliance on foreign product and provide well-paying jobs at a time of high unemployment for Minnesotans.  The mine will also yield tax revenues for upgrades in infrastructure, which will help raise employment and prosperity for the people of Minnesota’s Eighth District
