The Pebble project has proposed an 83-mile transportation corridor that includes a port site at Amakdedori on Kamishak Bay, a ferry crossing Iliamna Lake, a 29-mile road from the mine site to the northern ferry terminal on the north shore of Iliamna Lake, and a 37-mile road from the southern ferry terminal to the Amakdedori port.

The Pebble Limited Partnership is pushing to develop the deposit and build the Pebble Mine despite public and political opposition and peer-reviewed scientific research showing that large-scale mining in Bristol Bay would have irreversible impacts on Bristol Bay's world-class salmon populations.
Pebble Limited Partnership proposes to develop the Pebble copper-gold-molybdenum porphyry deposit (Pebble Deposit) as an open-pit mine, with associated infrastructure, in southwest Alaska, approximately 17 miles west/northwest of the villages of Iliamna, Newhalen, and Nondalton.
The Pebble Project is a copper-gold-molybdenum porphyry deposit in the advanced exploration stage. The project is located on state land in the Bristol Bay Region of southwest Alaska, approximately 17 miles northwest of the community of Iliamna.
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Begins Review of Pebble Mine Permit Application. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) is reviewing a Clean Water Act permit application from the Pebble Limited Partnership and has started the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) process under the National Environmental Policy Act.
The proposed Pebble mine would cause catastrophic harm to Alaska salmon and communities. It would turn the last salmon stronghold—food for locals and for people around the world—into a mining zone. Northern Dynasty Minerals needs to stop throwing pitches at investors and listen to Alaskans.
Pebble would be a large copper, gold and molybenum mine with its ore extracted from a large, open mine pit, although in the future underground mining might be needed to extract deeper ore resources. If built, the mine would be a major employer in southcentral Alaska.
Save Bristol Bay is an effort to protect Bristol Bay from the Pebble Mine and future mining proposals that threaten this pristine wilderness. Save Bristol Bay is an effort to protect Bristol Bay from the Pebble Mine and future mining proposals that threaten this pristine wilderness.
The folks at Pebble Mine have offered a handful of local jobs for 50 years. 50 years of employment, and then Bristol Bay is left with a hole in the Earth over a mile wide and a lake of toxic waste. Doesn't make much economic sense.
The corporation behind Pebble Mine has signaled its intent to move forward, submitting permit applications in December 2017. Join Earthjustice in this continued fight for one of our world's surviving great ecosystems. We will keep you updated on each step of the fight.
Pebble Mine is simply different. In any configuration, the mine is too big and will be located in too important of a location. It poses unacceptable risks to the salmon resource and, consequently, the subsistence lifestyle and economic interests of our shareholders.
About Pebble (Mine) Science This site promotes sharing of objective scientific information on proposed copper mining in Bristol Bay, Alaska. Mining in this region is controversial because mining can cause significant adverse impacts to water quality and fisheries and 51% of the world's sockeye salmon originates from Bristol Bay.
For over ten years, the battle between sportsmen and the Pebble Mine project, a proposal for the world's largest open-pit mine intended for the headwaters of Bristol Bay, has been underway. Many thought the project had been defeated in 2014, but make no mistake, Pebble Mine is still very alive.
