This is an opportunity for you to be informed about what we have learned about the risks of the proposed nickel sulfide Talon Metals mine in Tamarack, Minnesota and related issues.

This month's topic is titled "Consultation and Trust Responsibility" by Kelly Applegate, Commissioner of Natural Resources with Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe. The Mille Lacs Band's Water Over Nickel campaign demonstrates strong opposition to Talon Metals proposed Tamarack Nickel mine project in the 1855 Treaty Territory. This presentation will cover Federal and State Government relations with Tribal Governments. Kelly will discuss the Trust responsibility held by the Federal government to the Mille Lacs band as a Trust beneficiary and how relations are strained when Federal entities provide Talon Metals with millions of dollars for exploration when the environmental review process has just begun.
