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.
