After over a decade, Pebble mine backers have filed permit applications to construct a massive open-pit mine in Bristol Bay, Alaska – one of North America’s most treasured, awe-inspiring fisheries.
To Alaskan audiences, Pebble says they have listened to our concerns and are now proposing a "smaller mine" with less impact to the fishery. Don’t be fooled by their lies. Because meanwhile, in attempts to attract investors, their OWN WEBSITE says the truth:
Today, salmon lovers across the country can order sockeye salmon from Pride of Bristol Bay and have it delivered directly to homes and businesses across the country. A portion of proceeds from every order placed will go directly to efforts to protect Bristol Bay from the Pebble Mine proposal.
Alaskans opposed to the Pebble Mine project will support Bristol Bay residents who rely on healthy runs of wild salmon by rallying outside a Monday Pebble Partnership gathering in Anchorage. Pebble is convening the private meeting to discuss how to build a mine with their hand-picked advisory panel.
Sportsmen and business owners throughout the Bristol Bay region and Alaskans remain steadfast in their opposition to the proposed Pebble Mine despite today’s announcement that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed to withdraw the July 2014 Clean Water Act Section 404(c) Proposed Determination that, if finalized, would have applied up-front restrictions mining activities that harm salmon in Alaska’s Bristol Bay watershed.
Local organizations ran an ad in the Vancouver paper today to ensure anyone considering investing in Pebble knows the truth.
