The gigantic Pebble copper and gold prospect in Southwest Alaska is one of the touchiest topics in Alaska today.
In this blog, I'll track news that is significant or interesting about the Pebble project. I'll also try to generate discussion and information sharing about some of the claims and counterclaims about the project, and mining in general.
Please keep your comments courteous and on topic. If you violate the ADN comment policy, your posts will be deleted.

I've been writing about mining in Alaska since 2004 and without a doubt, it is one of the most interesting topics that I cover at the Daily News. I've been a newspaper reporter for the past 10 years. In the Deep South, I specialized in reporting about environmental conflicts and pollution cleanups. For two years, I covered commercial fishing, mining and logging in Southeast Alaska. In my current job as a Daily News business reporter, I write about mining, tourism, Native corporations and other businesses.

Pebble & scientific studies, Part 3
Posted: April 10, 2009 - 7:00 pm
The Nature Conservancy recently completed a report on a series of fish surveys it did in 2008 in the headwater streams of the Nushagak and Kvichak River drainages
The non-profit says it found salmon rearing habitat directly above the Pebble ore body, and it suggests that the Pebble Partnership or the state do a more extensive survey of additional fish streams in the area.
The report, written up by Dr. Carol Ann Woody, resulted in the nomination of about 28 miles of salmon rearing habitat to the state's anadromous waters catalog, she said.
