Pebble Project

Project Description

The Pebble Project is a copper-gold-molybdenum porphyry deposit in the advanced exploration stage. The project is located on state land in the Bristol Bay Region of southwest Alaska, approximately 17 miles northwest of the community of Iliamna.

Pebble consists of two contiguous deposits. Pebble West is a near surface resource of approximately 4.1 billion metric tons. Pebble East is significantly deeper than Pebble West and contains an estimated resource at 3.4 billion metric tons.

Pebble Limited Partnership (Applicant) has applied for federal permits to develop a portion of the Pebble deposit as an open-pit mine, along with an associated transportation corridor, Amakdedori port facility, and natural gas pipeline. Pebble Limited Partnership’s application has triggered the need for an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is the lead federal agency for the EIS process. The Alaska Department of Natural Resources is leading the State of Alaska’s engagement in the EIS process as a cooperating agency. More information regarding the EIS process is located at Pebble Project EIS.
