The Wild Rice-Water Protection case, and this Stakeholder Analysis exercise, arise in the context of debate about development of large-scale copper-sulfate mines, namely PolyMet and Twin Metals, underway in northern Minnesota in the past ten years. These mines hold promise of good-paying jobs and tax revenues for Minnesota, a state with a history of comparatively safe mining, but could also harm the environment in various ways, with wild rice being the focus of this case.
