Pebble Mine | A New Worrisome Update
About 2 weeks ago we were all under the impression that the horrifying montrosity, Pebble Mine, was on it’s last leg after one of it’s biggest backers, First Quantum Minerals, backed out. We knew that the corps of engineers was reviewing their latest proposal but we did not know what this proposal was bringing to the table, or better yet, the chopping block, until now. As if a huge open pit mine near the worlds most productive salmon fishery is not bad enough, the propasal is also threatening the most protected place in all of Alaska, the McNeil River State Game Sanctuary and Refuge. Here is a great description of how Pebble Mine could effect this sanctuary and also what you can do to help.
