Conflicts between the proposed Pebble gold and silver mine in Alaska and defenders of the salmon spawning grounds nearby…
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
Science magazine has published a wonderful article about the conflict between the proposed Pebble gold and silver mine in Alaska and defenders of the salmon spawning grounds nearby. The article is more about salmon science but it includes lots of details about the mine plan as well. It suggests that the smaller version of the plan would create little risk to the fishery but that the mine is opposed mainly because the fishery’s defenders doubt that the mine would stick to the smaller footprint over the long term.
The article is headlined “How a Salmon Scientist Got Hooked into a Battle over the World’s Largest Gold Mine” and it’s posted at Science magazine here:
