Opinion: Kelly Osborne (Twin Metals Minnesota CEO)
Over the past two years, Twin Metals Minnesota (TMM) has been conducting a Prefeasibility Study (PFS) for our proposed underground copper-nickel mining project in northeast Minnesota. In late August, Duluth Metals Limited, the majority partner in the TMM joint venture, released highlights from the PFS Technical Report, which confirms that the TMM Project offers an extraordinary job creation and economic development opportunity for the region and the entire state.
The TMM Project is among the world’s most promising copper-nickel mining developments due to the magnitude of Minnesota’s mineral resource and the project’s location in a region that has a strong mining history, world-class labor force, and extensive mining infrastructure, including existing roads, rail lines, ports, power and water supplies.
The competitive advantages Minnesota offers are key to the TMM Project’s projected long-term economic success.
