Mining

Mining and mining support services are key economic drivers in Alaska. We offer coverage of the state’s major producing mines including Greens Creek, Red Dog, Fort Knox, Kensington, Pogo, and Usibelli Coal Mine, as well as the companies that operate them, and the commodities they produce (zinc, lead, gold, silver, and coal, to name just a few). Mine development and production, closure and reclamation, employment, and workforce development are all key areas of coverage at Alaska Business.

Hydrocarbons are a two-edged sword. One edge is hydrogen, storing energy like wound-up springs that is released when combusted with oxygen. The other edge is the carbon atoms the hydrogen is bonded to, which in the grip of oxygen become a climate-warming veil of carbon dioxide gas. Petroleum under the North Slope and methane under Cook Inlet have both potentials: productive energy from hydrogen and destructive pollution from carbon. In a decarbonizing global market, Alaska needs a way to separate the good from the bad.
