Major backer in the pebble Mine project pulls financial support out, 75-percent of Americans say “No” to Pebble Mine in Alaska. The public made it a point to support the EPA’s efforts to protect the Bristol bay Watershed, almost 900,000 voiced their opinion to protect the world’s largest wild sockeye salmon fisher and the fishing industry that supports 14,000 jobs.
Nearly 84% of Alaska residents also commented and supported the EPA for protecting their region
The American people have spoken, and Bristol Bay is no place for Pebble Mine. It’s the most fantastic news for the United States natural Resources. Anglo American London, the financial backers for the Pebble Mine giant open pit on the richest group of salmon rivers has left the building. The whole weight of the Pebble mine project now falls on the shoulders of Northern Dynasty Minerals Ltd Vancouver, B.C. and so far they haven’t tossed in their hat. Their shares have fallen by one-third to $1.49 since 2011 after peaking at $20.
Keep the support for Bristol Bay going and we hope to see Northern Dynasty take the same route as Anglo American did
Northern Dynasty has not formally filed for federal or state permits to operate. Opponents are lobbying to block it under the Clean Water Act on the grounds it will contaminate Bristol Bay and imperil a thriving wild salmon fishery.
