Bristol Bay Gold Mine

Anyone read the article in Fly Fisherman Magazine about the large gold mine they are planning to open in Bristol Bay, Alaska? It is supposed to be a open pit mine, which will dump large amounts of sediment and chemicals into the bay. This will damage one of Alaska's biggest salmon spawning waters. Since the company looking to do this is Candian they will have limited to no liability for the damage done. Trout Unlimited and several other local tribes and conservation groups are against it. The governor is pushing for an faster approval process for the company.
