The US Army Corps of Engineers – Alaska District is extending the public comment period an additional thirty days for the Pebble Limited Partnership draft environmental impact statement.
The Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the Pebble Project has been released by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). Upon initial review, the Pebble Partnership (PLP) strongly believes it demonstrates that the proposed 20-year mine development plan for the Pebble deposit can be done in an environmentally responsible manner and that it points to a clear path forward for success in permitting the project.
Three world-class mining prospects are the Donlin Gold prospect in Southwest Alaska, the Upper Kobuk Mineral Project in Northwest Alaska, and Pebble in the Bristol Bay region of the state. All three are near or in the permitting phase.
