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.
