“WHERE IS PEBBLE?”
Despite what you may have seen or heard, Pebble is NOT at the “headwaters” of Bristol Bay. It is at the upper reaches of three very small tributaries — out of over 50,000 tributaries in the entire drainage.
Pebble is in a very suitable location. Even in the unlikely event of an incident, we’re confident the effect on the fishery would be minimal.
Located on state of Alaska land open for development
100 air miles and 230 river miles from Bristol Bay
Footprint is only 0.013% of the Bristol Bay area
“The wrong mine, in the wrong place.”
You've probably seen some amazing pictures of the mine site, and southwestern Alaska is truly a beautiful and remarkable place. The only problem is that most of those pictures are nowhere near Pebble.
