PolyMet and Teck will become equal owners in PolyMet Mining, Inc., which will be renamed NewRange Copper Nickel LLC.

PolyMet chairman, president, and CEO, Jon Cherry stated that both projects represent around half of the known resources of Minnesota’s Duluth Complex, making the state a global leader and major force in developing strategic minerals.

“The total assets of the NorthMet and Mesaba deposits make this one of the largest clean-energy mineral resources in the U.S. and globally.”

Polymet is a mine development company that owns 100 per cent of the NorthMet Project, the first large-scale project to have received permits within the Duluth Complex in northeastern Minnesota, one of the world’s major, undeveloped mining regions.

NorthMet has significant proven and probable reserves of copper, nickel, and palladium – metals vital to infrastructure improvements and global carbon reduction efforts – in addition to marketable reserves of cobalt, platinum, and gold.

Polymet Mining Corp (POM) opened trading at C$3.54.
