    Fates of wild rice, mines intertwined in northern Minnesota

    Wild rice, the iconic grain that grows across much of the northern half of the state, is at the center of a contentious debate over mining and the environment.
    A 40-year-old state law limits how much of a mining byproduct called “sulfate” can be discharged into wild rice producing waters. Prompted by mining industry concerns that the standard is too stringent, the state has been giving it another look and will release results of its two-year study Monday.
