Up North Jobs to Governor Tim Walz
Petition of Up North Jobs to Governor Tim Walz
Twin Metals Minnesota is a Minnesota mining company focused on designing, constructing and operating a copper-nickel and precious metals underground mining project near Ely and Babbitt MN and is committed to doing so in an environmentally responsible way. When operational, Twin Metals will employ 650 people in well-paying jobs, create 1,300 jobs in mining related industries, stimulate regional economic development and job growth, and generate tax and royalty revenue supporting state and local governments and education of 900,000 K-12 students statewide.
Twin Metals will soon submit a mine operating plan and begin the process of obtaining a permit to conduct mining operations. The undersigned submit this Petition and respectfully ask the Walz administration to support Twin Metals' proposed underground mining project.
