Tribal, Native groups say “no way” to Pebble mine
Letter lets Pebble mine interest know that local opposition is deep, committed
Our client joined other organizations from the Bristol Bay region in Telling First Quantum Minerals that it
- opposes the proposed Pebble mine;
- it is disappointed in the company’s funding agreement for the proposed project;
- a massive gold and copper mine does not belong on top of a watershed that sustains a fisheries-based economy and way-of-life, along with the largest wild sockeye salmon run in the world;
- and that the EPA’s own report, substantiated by science, concludes that a mine would have “unacceptable adverse impacts” on the fish populations and streams that feed and provide jobs to the people of Bristol Bay.
