In this Wednesday, May 29, 2019, Eric Olson, right, gathered his tools as Robert Radotich used a backhoe to dig areas so the soil stratification can be observed which will help them engineer and design the infiltration pods for the PolyMet copper-nickel mine near Hoyt Lakes, Minn.

The Minnesota Court of Appeals has suspended more permits for PolyMet Mining's proposed $1 billion copper-nickel mine, pending a court hearing next month.

The temporary stays affect the company's permit to mine and two dam-safety permits, all issued last year by the state Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and opposed by environmental groups and the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.
