PolyMet will be the first to commercially mine copper, nickel and precious metals in the world-class Duluth Complex. Located within Minnesota’s Mesabi Iron Range, the NorthMet Project features three significant assets: the deposit itself, the former LTV Steel processing facilities which will be rehabilitated for this project, and the infrastructure including existing rail, roads, utilities and established supplier networks. The NorthMet deposit will be mined by open pit methods to a depth of approximately 700 feet below surface.
