Opinion: Copper is not going to magically disappear in the Superior area. It will be mined and it should only be mined with extensive environmental permitting requirements.

Opposition groups that seek to halt the Resolution Copper project are neither reasonable nor practical in their fight.
Certainly not for the interests of Superior, my hometown whose land and people I love and cherish.
Another view: Our tribe is not ‘at the table.’ Resolution Copper is an abomination
When the mining project was introduced to our community, it brought a glimmer of hope and opportunity. The Magma Mine had been shuttered since 1996 and opportunities were scarce for Superior for our dwindling population. This opportunity was important but not at the cost of the long-term sustainability of our community. We set out to become a town with a mine – not a mining town.
