Pebble Mine Comment Period Extended to June 29

On Friday, the Army Corps of Engineers extended the public comment period for the Pebble Mine Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) to June 29. Previously, the Corps rejected requests from many, including WPN members, to extend the DEIS comment period for this project that would devastate Bristol Bay's pristine wilderness in Alaska, home to a great diversity of wildlife including the world's greatest wild salmon fishery. This 30 day extension comes a week after Senator Murkowski's letter to the Corps requesting such an extension, as well as continued growing opposition to the project from conservation groups, community members, businesses and more.
