The Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce has officially announced it's support for a controversial proposed mining project.

PolyMet is proposing Minnesota's first copper nickel mine near Babbitt and a processing facility near Hoyt Lakes.

Thousands turned out to voice their support and opposition during the three public meetings on the project's draft environmental impact statement.

Among those was Duluth Chamber President David Ross.

According to a video released by PolyMet, Ross said at the final public meeting in St. Paul that the chamber's board of directors voted unanimously in support of project.

Ross officially announced the move in an email to the roughly 1,100 members of the chamber on Wednesday.

"In 2013 alone, PolyMet spent more than $1.2 million doing business with Duluth companies... the positive impact of PolyMet will exponentially grow when construction and mining begin," Ross writes in the message.
