Alaska Gold - Frontline on Pebble Mine
Posted 7.25.12 by Renewable Resources Coalition
Frontline on PBS did a special report on the proposed Pebble Mine in Bristol Bay, Alaska. If you weren't able to catch it on TV, you can watch the episode in it's entirety here.
Bristol Bay in southwest Alaska is home to the last great wild sockeye salmon fishery, and to mineral deposits estimated to be worth nearly $500 billion. FRONTLINE probes the fault lines of a growing battle between those who depend on this extraordinary fishery for a living, the mining companies pushing to extract the minerals and the political framework that will ultimately decide the outcome.
