PolyMet Mining Corp. TSX: POM; NYSE MKT: PLM today reported that the NorthMet Final Environmental Impact Statement has been completed and will be posted to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources website at

. The Final EIS demonstrates that PolyMet can mine and process copper, nickel and platinum group metals in a manner that complies with the law, protects the environment and creates hundreds of high-paying jobs in northern Minnesota while creating value for shareholders.

Completion of the Final EIS is a huge milestone for PolyMet, for the Iron Range communities, and for the state of Minnesota, said Jon Cherry, president and CEO. "It is the culmination of more than a decade of detailed analysis and thorough review from various state and federal regulatory agencies.

The EIS process was led by the DNR, the U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Army Corps. of Engineers, and their independent EIS Contractor. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has been actively involved as a cooperating federal agency in all aspects of the environmental review since 2011. Three Minnesota Chippewa bands (Bois Forte, Fond du Lac, and Grand Portage) also participated as cooperating entities. The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has also been actively involved in the process, lending its technical expertise to matters such as water quality and air quality as the agency transitions into its role in future permitting and environmental compliance. The agencies work, which is thoroughly documented in the Final EIS, included extensive environmental monitoring, baseline studies, and modeling.

The Final EIS will be formally published in the Minnesota Environmental Quality Board Monitor and in the Federal Register. Each of the co-lead agencies and the PCA will then follow a different path through permitting as applicable.

With publication in the EQB...
