The Pebble Project is located in southwest Alaska. Northern Dynasty is 100% owner of the Pebble Partnership, which is advancing the world-class Pebble deposit in Alaska towards permitting and development.
The Pebble deposit is one of the greatest stores of mineral wealth ever discovered, and the world’s largest undeveloped copper and gold resource. The Pebble Project’s tonnes, grade, metallurgy and geometry have the potential to support a modern, long-life mine.
The current resource estimate includes 6.44 billion tonnes in the measured and indicated categories containing 57 billion lb copper, 70 million oz gold, 3.4 billion lb molybdenum and 344 million oz silver; and 4.46 billion tonnes in the inferred category, containing 24.5 billion lb copper, 37 million oz gold, 2.2 billion lb molybdenum and 170 million oz silver. Palladium and rhenium also occur in the deposit.
Pebble is well advanced with the environmental science and engineering work necessary to determine an optimized design with the goal to enter the National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) permitting process late this year. We are committed to designing a project that is responsive to Alaskan input and needs and, as such, we expect to enter permitting with a project that has a demonstrably smaller footprint than previously contemplated.
On October 5, 2017, Tom Collier, President & CEO of the Pebble Limited Partnership, delivered a presentation outlining current development considerations for the Pebble Project that will reduce the project’s footprint and significantly enhance environmental safeguards
