ANCHORAGE, AK - This morning, the Army Corps of Engineers released Public Notice stating they've received Pebble's mining permit application.
In response to this news and an initial review of the application by Trout Unlimited, Nelli Williams, director of Trout Unlimited’s Alaska Program, released the following statement:
ANCHORAGE, AK - Today, the Pebble Limited Partnership announced they will submit applications for permits needed to build the proposed Pebble Mine in Bristol Bay, Alaska tomorrow.
DILLINGHAM, AK – Today, the Bristol Bay region met the Pebble Limited Partnership’s long-delayed federal permit applications with skepticism and renewed determination as Northern Dynasty continues to move forward with a mine Alaskans don’t want.
“There is a long history of investors walking away from the proposed Pebble Mine -- and for good reason. It is an ill-conceived, shortsighted project that flies in the face of local people, American jobs, businesses, a majority of Alaskans and millions of hunters and anglers. This widespread and unwavering opposition, on top of numerous other concerns, has long made Pebble a risky investment.
