The Army Corps of Engineers’ decision to reject the disastrous Pebble Mine project was a promising victory in the fight to save Alaska’s Bristol Bay – but it was a temporary one. The mining company and its backers have appealed the Army Corps’ decision and promised to fight tooth and nail to develop this proposed open-pit, gold and copper mega-mine.

The Army Corps of Engineers’ decision to reject the disastrous Pebble Mine was a promising victory in the fight to save Alaska’s Bristol Bay – but it was a temporary one.

The mining company and its backers have appealed the Army Corps’ decision and are fighting tooth and nail to develop this proposed open-pit, gold and copper mega-mine.

If developed, it would produce 10 billion tons of mining waste that would threaten the health of Indigenous People and ecosystems that depend on the bay’s abundant wildlife, and it would worsen our climate crisis by emitting millions of tons of greenhouse gases.

We need a permanent solution. Ask the EPA to put an end to this dangerous mega-mine once and for all by vetoing the project.
