They continue to push for a contested case hearing, ahead of the DNR's decision about the all important permit to mine.

John Doberstein said, "We are volunteers are going directly to the governor's office and the office of the DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. We want this hearing. We want more scrutiny."

PolyMet said that the DNR continues to review their permit to mine application, and that public comment is part of the process.

Six of their draft water appropriation permits went up for review last Friday.
