The Danger: Pebble Mine is the largest open pit mine
in the world. It would be an open-pit and block calving
mine that would sit astride the two greatest river
systems feeding Bristol Bay. The mine waste would be
held – forever – behind the world’s largest earthen
dam, which would be 4.3 miles long and over twice
the height of the Statue of Liberty - in the middle of one of the most active earthquake zones on earth. Every large copper/gold mine in the world has had environmental disasters that have ruined the waters and wildlife around them. Every one. No mine like it has ever been developed in a
location like Bristol Bay. Pebble Mine would sit 950 ft above Bristol Bay and there is a virtual certainty that this will result in environmental disasters that will mean national headlines about America's last wild salmon fishery - being contaminated.

The Pebble Partnership has not been telling Alaskans the truth.

Three scientific studies showed that Pebble Partnership lied when they said no salmon streams would be harmed.
