The company report on March 15, 2021 that Northern Dynasty: US Army Corps of Engineers’ Claim That Economic Costs of Pebble Project Outweigh Project Benefits Contradicts the Administrative Record.
Northern Dynasty Minerals Ltd. (TSX:NDM)(NYSE American:NAK) (“Northern Dynasty” or the “Company”) reports that its Request for Appeal (“RFA”) of a federal permitting decision concerning Alaska’s Pebble Project challenges key conclusions reached by the US Army Corps of Engineers (“USACE”) with respect to the project’s economic benefits and costs.
Prepared and submitted by the Company’s 100%-owned US-based subsidiary Pebble Limited Partnership (the “Pebble Partnership”), the RFA asserts that the USACE’s Public Interest Review (“PIR”) for the Pebble Project, published coincident with its Record of Decision (“ROD”) in November 2020, is contrary to the law and inconsistent with the record – including the Final Environmental Impact Statement (“EIS” or “FEIS”). The Pebble Partnership believes the social and economic impact conclusions drawn by the USACE in the PIR give “undue weight to speculative harms not supported by the record while giving little weight to the Project’s undisputed benefits to local communities, the region, and the State.” (RFA p. 3).
