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 protest goes to London
Posted: April 15, 2009 - 2:08 pm
From Bill White in Anchorage --
A group of Alaskans who oppose development of the Pebble prospect are in London to protest at the annual meeting of Anglo American, the multinational that is part owner of Pebble.
Lynda Giguere, an Anchorage spokeswoman for the group, says that Lydia Olympic and Everett Thompson, members of the Alaska delegation, will appear on London's Sky News network at 10 a.m. Alaska time Thursday to talk about their concerns with the Pebble Mine prospect in Bristol Bay.
