Copper-nickel mining (also known as non-ferrous mining) in northern Minnesota is not a new issue for the state. Copper-nickel deposits have been known to exist in northern Minnesota since the 1800s, but it was not until 1948, when deposits were discovered near Duluth, that serious interest in mining these metals developed in the region.

copper oxide is then subjected to a reducing atmosphere to form purer copper. The fire-refined copper is then cast into anodes for even further purification by electrolytic refining. Electrolytic refining separates copper from impurities by electrolysis in a solution containing copper sulfate (Cu2SO4) and sulfuric acid (H2SO4). The copper anode is dissolved and deposited at
