State of Alaska : Governor praises DNR decision to re-establish Bristol Bay Advisory Group

04/19/2018 | 08:42pm EDT

No. 18-047

JUNEAU - On Thursday, the Alaska Department of Natural Resources re-established the Bristol Bay Advisory Group and separately issued a permit for Pebble Limited Partnership to conduct activities on its mining claims in the Bristol Bay Region during the 2018 field season.

The Governor issued the following statement on DNR's decisions:

'Bristol Bay supports the most productive wild sockeye fishery in the world. We should continue to protect that resource, which has sustained the region for generations. The Department of Natural Resources' issuance of a one-year exploration permit maintains robust oversight of the Pebble Limited Partnership as the company conducts reclamation, monitoring, and exploration activities. The reinstatement of the Bristol Bay Advisory Group gives local residents a powerful tool to guide land and resource management in their region. These actions ensure good stewardship of the land while creating a forum for local voices to be heard loud and clear.' - Governor Bill Walker
