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.

Diving into Alaska Aquaculture

November 2020

Aquaculture is an industry Alaskans are probably familiar with, even if they’re unfamiliar with the term itself. Broadly, aquaculture refers to the cultivation of numerous species of fish and aquatic plants, such as shellfish, algae, and finfish, as well as enhancement and restoration projects designed to increase wild populations of specific species, says Heather McCarty, vice-chair of the Alaska Mariculture Task Force.
