Sen. Murkowski Comments on Anglo American Decision on Pebble Project

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, today issued the following statement regarding Anglo American’s decision to pull out of the Pebble Limited Partnership, which was formed to develop a gold and copper mine in Southwest Alaska:

“Anglo American’s choice to withdraw from development of the Pebble mine was a private business decision driven by a variety of economic factors. The company has stated its reasons and I have no reason to question the decision,” Murkowski said. “Mining is an important part of our state’s economy and I continue to believe that Alaska’s resources can be developed responsibly for the benefit of all.”
