AK - Northern Dynasty releases 'Environmental, Social & Governance' (ESG) Report for Alaska's Pebble Project
Northern Dynasty Minerals Ltd. has completed an ‘Environmental, Social & Governance' ("ESG") Report for southwest Alaska's Pebble Project, and posted it to its corporate website.
Northern Dynasty acquired its interest in State of Alaska mineral claims at the Pebble property in 2001, and since that time has worked diligently with a number of partners to explore, plan and permit a proposed copper-gold-molybdenum-silver-rhenium mine. The Pebble Project ESG Report released today addresses the broad range of progressive principles, practices and commitments the Company and its 100%-owned US-based subsidiary Pebble Limited Partnership ("Pebble Partnership") have employed at Pebble over the past two decades to advance the project toward environmentally sound and socially responsible development.
"For many reasons - including the Pebble deposit's size and significance, its location in a vast region that supports world-class fisheries, and the active campaigning of national environmental organizations - the progress of the Pebble Project has been marked by public controversy and rhetoric," said Ron Thiessen, Northern Dynasty President & CEO. "It's unfortunate because so much of the good work done to plan, permit, develop and operate a modern copper mine at Pebble that would, in many ways, set a new standard for responsible mineral development in the United States has been obscured."
