The headline for a story in Thursday's Empire on the Kensington mine referred to air quality as an issue that could delay the mine's opening, but the article did not substantiate it. The article should have said that state environmental regulators are considering an operating permit for ambient air emissions for the mine. Regulators said the mine may need a construction permit for air emissions as well, and companies sometimes have to adjust their proposals to meet thresholds in air emissions.
