Norway approves 'most environmentally damaging project' in country's history
Operation will see heavy metal waste dumped in fjords and put reindeer at risk

Norway has approved a plan to begin mining for copper in the Arctic, angering environmentalists who fear it will lead to the destruction of reindeer pastures and the pollution of nearby fjords. Indigenous Sami herders and fishermen argue the plan, which was approved by Oslo on Thursday, will add to the existing problems of climate change, oil spills and poaching affecting their homes and livelihoods. Up to 66 million tons of copper ore are believed to be in ground in Kvalsund in Finnmark – Europe’s northernmost region deep inside the Arctic Circle. Environmentalists fear it will lead to mining and drilling projects in other fragile ecosystems in the Arctic, which has become the latest frontier in the quest for rapidly depleting mineral and fossil fuel reserves.
