Army Corps Of Engineers Says Northern Dynasty Mine Would Degrade Environment
Northern Dynasty Minerals’ principal property is a proposed copper-gold-molybdenum project in southwest Alaska that covers 417 square miles known as the Pebble Project. On August 24, 2020, the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers put out a statement, which said that the Pebble Project would significantly degrade the environment and “likely result in significant adverse effects on the aquatic system or human environment.”
The Army Corps of Engineers also said that the Pebble Project would not be permitted under the Clean Water Act as currently proposed and requested that the company submit a mitigation plan to address their findings. The news caused Northern Dynasty stock to drop almost 40%.
On September 21, 2020, the EIA (Environmental Investigation Agency) released a recording of a conversation between Northern Dynasty executives and EIA investigators that showed the company expected the Pebble Project would have a life of 180-200 years, which was much longer than the company had said publicly.
On November 25, 2020 the company stated that the Army Corps of Engineers had rejected its mitigation plan regarding the Pebble Project, saying it was not compliant or in the public interest. That news caused the company’s stock to fall by 50%.
The class action complaint alleges that the company made false and/or misleading statements related to these issues.
