Wildlife

Just as we’ve proven we’re able to do at our Greens Creek mine in Alaska, we’re committed to protecting fish and wildlife around the Rock Creek Mine, where our proposed plan of operation includes extensive mitigation and monitoring measures to ensure both wildlife and water quality protections.

“The Fish and Wildlife Service concluded that the extensive package of mitigation measures supported a finding that the proposed mine posed ‘no jeopardy’ to the grizzly bears because ‘collectively, the measures would reduce, remove or more than offset the potential adverse effects of the proposed action.’ The mitigation plan was so robust that the Fish and Wildlife Service concluded it ‘would in fact improve conditions over the long-term over the existing conditions, ultimately promoting the recovery of the [local] grizzly bear population.’” U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals
