Pebble Mine is the common name of a mineral exploration project investigating a very large porphyry copper, gold, and molybdenum mineral deposit in the Bristol Bay region of Southwest Alaska. This area is also the watershed to the world's largest run of sockeye salmon. Visit the Commercial Fishermen for Bristol Bay site to learn more about how this potential mine will affect fishing habitat in perpetuity.
The Environmental Protection Agency released its second draft assessment of the Bristol Bay watershed and is accepting comments until June 30. Submit your comments at the Commercial Fishermen for Bristol Bay site (includes suggested comments) or directly to the EPA.
