The Minnesota Regional Copper-Nickel Study is a comprehensive examination of the potential cumulative environmental, social and economic impacts of copper-nickel development in northeastern Minnesota. It was conducted from 1976 through 1978 by a special study team assembled by the Minnesota Environmental Quality Board. Funding for the study was provided by the Legislative Commission on Minnesota Resources.

The executive summary of the 5 volume, 36 chapter report presents some of the major findings of the Study. In addition, over 180 technical reports, extensive environmental monitoring data files, special sample collections, and other information resources compiled by the Study, remain available at Minneapolis Central Library.

The Minnesota Regional Copper-Nickel Study remains relevant today in light of renewed interest in the region by mineral resource development companies such as PolyMet and Twin Metals.

Thanks to the Minnesota Legislative Reference Library, many volumes of the Study are also available digitally.
