Economic Benefits

Pebble can help address Alaska’s fiscal crisis

The Lake & Peninsula Borough and Bristol Bay region is characterized by:

  • High levels of unemployment
  • High cost of living
  • Decreasing population

Outmigration causes severe school budgetary pressures - many schools have closed

Pebble would offer substantial economic benefits: locally; regionally; statewide

Note:

The information on this page is based on a current mine planning undertaken by the Pebble Limited Partnership (PLP). We continue to consider various development options and no final project design has been selected by PLP at this time. The information is intended to provide information about general economic effects/contribution of a development at Pebble to Alaska and the Lake and Borough Peninsula region. It should not be used to evaluate the Pebble Project’s impact on Northern Dynasty.
