Solicitor’s Opinion Reverses Decision, Allows Renewal of Twin Metals Mineral Leases

ST. PAUL, MN—The Solicitor’s Office for the Department of the Interior informed House Speaker Kurt Daudt Friday of a forthcoming opinion reversing President Obama’s previous decision denying renewal of mineral leases held by Twin Metals Minnesota. The new opinion concludes that the two leases that Twin Metals has from the United States granted them a non-discretionary right to a third renewal and, therefore, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) did not have the discretion to deny Twin Metals’ lease renewal application in December 2016. The BLM and the Forest Service, which is the surface management agency, will now move forward to review their December 2016 decisions according to the M-Opinion’s advice.
