Alaska lawmakers request Pebble Mine study

Two Alaska lawmakers have requested a study of the impacts of developing a world-class copper-and-gold prospect at the headwaters of Bristol Bay.

Sen. Bill Wielechowski and Rep. Bryce Edgmon asked the Legislative Council to provide funding for an independent, third-party review of the potential effects of the proposed Pebble Mine.

The request Tuesday follows a joint legislative hearing last week and a request earlier this year by the Board of Fisheries.

Bristol Bay is home to a premier commercial sockeye salmon fishery. The board asked the Legislature to study permitting standards and environmental safeguards and to take steps it considers necessary to protect game and fish habitat.

The lawmakers say the study is key to addressing those concerns.
