Last Straw for Pebble Mine
Bristol Bay Alaska is the largest salmon fishery in the world, this fishery was jeopardized years ago when Pebble Mine was proposed. The mine was ultimately shut down after years of opposition when Obama EPA created a proposal to block the mine until the Trump administration allowed a propasal to be reviewed by the Army Corps of Engineers. Just days ago it was confirmed that First Quantum Minerals, a potential 50% invester, has backed out of the project. This move leaves Northern Dynasty minerals the full owner of the Pebble Mine and potentially pulling the last straw. Hope is alive for clean water in Alaska.
