EPA Brings Disastrous Pebble Mine Proposal One Step Closer to Extinction

Environmental Protection Agency announcement says Alaska's Bristol Bay is Ours, not (Pebble) Mine 

“Pebble Mine has plagued Alaska for decades, and it is welcome news that the EPA is returning to its mission and announcing steps to safeguard our region,“ said Jim Adams, Alaska senior regional director for the National Parks Conservation Association. "It is a critical time for determining the future of Bristol Bay, and people, wild salmon, parks and wild places. While there is more work ahead, many of us in Alaska and across the country are energized and ready to put the disastrous Pebble Mine behind us forever.”
