State environmental review of the proposed Tamarack Nickel project


The DNR anticipates that Talon Nickel LLC (the proposer) may submit a project proposal for the Tamarack Nickel Mine (the project), a new mining operation, in 2023. The potential proposal would require the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement under the Minnesota Environmental Policy Act.

The potential project would be located approximately 30 miles west of Cloquet, Minnesota, approximately 1.5 miles north of the City of Tamarack and approximately 10 miles east of McGregor, Minnesota.

Please sign up below for email updates that will include notification of the DNR receipt of the proposer’s initial submittal, information about the environmental review process, and progress as the potential project continues. Updates will be made to this webpage regularly upon the proposal submittal.
