May 2018 Pebble Mine Update

First the good news; The Pebble Partnership has lost another financial partner. https://www.alaskapublic.org/2018/05/25/pebble-mine-loses-funding-from-first-quantum-minerals/  This will present a huge challenge to the would be mine developer but we must remain diligent. Remember, they are just one large investor away from pursuing a potentially disastrous, huge, open pit gold mine project in the midst of the spawning habitat of two of the world’s most productive Sockeye salmon producing river systems.

Pebble has filed an application for one of the major federal permits they’ll need to build Pebble Mine and turn Bristol Bay into an industrial mining district. The Army Corps of Engineers is in charge of reviewing this permit application and is holding a public comment period from April 1- June 29, 2018. Please take a minute and tell the Army Corp of Engineers that trading a fully utilized, sustainable wild salmon resource for the short term profit of a gold mine is not worth it!
