Walker Pilot Independent
While Gov. Mark Dayton was out of state trying to bring jobs to Minnesota, three representatives from Jobs For Minnesotans were in Walker last week touting the strategic metals that are just waiting to be mined in northeast Minnesota.
Christopher Tiedeman and Mike Franklin of Weber Johnson Public Affairs, located in St. Paul, and Jason George, the Legislative and Political director of International Union of Operating Engineers in Minneapolis, said thousands of jobs will be created by mining these metals.
Northeast Minnesota has one of the largest untapped sources of copper, nickel, platinum, palladium, cobalt and gold in the world.
