The mine is designed to withstand the greatest possible seismicity predicted by science. But even in the worst possible scenario, science tells us that the fishery will be fine.



No meaningful area seismicity for 11,000 years

Designed for a max quake where no fault exists

Will be built for Alaska’s largest earthquakes
