Mining started 2 weeks ago, they are pumping out silt into the bay, its going to kill off the salmon in 18 months.

The greatest and cheapest source of copper by far is recycled copper. Hardly any comes from mining by comparison.

Let Alaska buy the gold from the mining company and leave it in the ground.

The CEOs don't live here! They just come to rape the land, then when something goes wrong they will not be made to answer for it. Don't do it!

They have fished out the oceans from commercial fishing like this. So the idea that they can fish “ half” and not impact them is crap. They should leave Bristle Bay alone for several years and they will find this will no longer be the ONLY salmon run. Both greedy corporations battling over natural resources.

The look of greed on these westerners faces is priceless. They always end up destroying the very thing they love...all for money. Mining has and never will be a sustainable industry unlike salmon.

So mining fish is ok, but mining metal to sustain our economy is not?

Fish you can eat, but minerals you can’t eat. They will just end up in some heavily locked reserves. Why can people just learn that our habitat and environment is something you can live in. But, the acids and other wastes that will destroy that very habitat and environment and we can’t live in it. I would choose the the environment and the habitat that will last forever. Water, once it is destroyed is gone forever. All the rivers, lakes and the wildlife will be at risk if this mining goes ahead. Say, goodbye to all the livelihood and the thousands of years of the ecosystem that sustained the wildlife.

Lets starve all of those geologist to death,put a fish and a nugget of gold and see what they will choose to eat to stay alive.

Turn your dream into reality! SG Market https://sg.market/?id=199087242 Chinese Gold Panda coins officially listed on Shanghai Gold Exchange Chinese Gold Panda coins were officially listed on the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) on Wednesday, making them the only gold coin product in the world to be traded on an exchange market. First issued by the People's Republic of China in 1982, the Chinese Gold Panda is a series of gold bullion coins featuring a variety of panda portraits. The coins are normally released, in different sizes and bearing different designs, every year. The coins listed on the SGE this year have a standard weight of 30 grammes and a fineness of 99.9 percent. They are also said to be available for all qualified personal and institutional clients. The first transaction was for 278.8 yuan/g on Wednesday morning, according to thepaper.cn. SGE announced that the listing is a major reform in China's precious metal commemorative coin business, in terms of its distribution, management and trading methods. It went on to say that the move constitutes a significant platform for the creation of a trading platform characterised by authorisation and fairness. It is reported that the decision will facilitate public investment and help connect China's gold market to its gold coin market, thereby boosting joint prosperity.

What will it profit a man to gang the whole world and lose his own soul. The won't stop until there's nothings left till the earth is just a ball of dirt.

This world is on the fast track of being destroyed by greed, selfishness, and egotism. Destroyed beyond the point of repair if it werent for Jehovah. This is just another example of the fact that man is not capable of directing his own step.
just say to mining cause it will destroy the environment and they cannot reverse all the damages it maybring

According to Wall Street investors gold is a bad investment , they say that it doesn't generate returns and it only act as a Financial hedge against financial instability . SO WHY INVEST 7-8 BILLION DOLLARS MINING A METAL THAT IS CONSIDERED A LOUSY PLACE TO PUT YOUR MONEY INTO , OR MAYBE THE WALL STREET INVESTORS ARE LYING TO THE PUBLIC ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING GOLD IN OUR FINANCE ???

The EPA has been intimidated and owned. They backed off defending the environment case. THAT IS THEIR SOLE REASONS TO EXIST. So, not fit for purpose. In 50 years there will be no mine, no taxes, and no fishery. No fit place to live. You have a right to defend yourself.
bikerjon1 (9 months ago)
To believe the two industry's can survive is naive. One collapse of a tailing dam for instance would ruin the fish, and add toxin to those fish and the eaters of it.  The company would goo bust before a fine happened. WHO HAS THE STRONGEST LOBBY GROUP. Get down an Lobby your representative. Phone them. Mail them...

Alaska needs this mine and these jobs. Hopefully with Trump in office he can get things done! This mine is safe and I think the fisherman and the miners can coexist:)

How much per year is the salmon worth? What % reduction to the current salmon will be incurred by mining? What compensation will the miners pay the fishermen? Why does this documentary not ask these basic questions?
Skeptical Chris (1 year ago)
Its the salmon, that is the REAL gold.

I'm no environmentalist nut by any means. I don't even agree that CO2 is a significant contributor to global warming. Nor do I think that humans contribute very much to global temperature changes. But this... seems to be reckless unless they make some major engineering breakthroughs. This is on a scale where you cannot get it wrong. One big earthquake and it's all over. All of those beautiful animals and ecosystem. Gone.

Just some info regardless of which side you take on this. Ticker on NYSE: NAK... Epa can't shut them down at this time and the company has moved to the next stage which is 3-4 years of permitting and planning followed by 3-4 year construction leading to production currently expected to start in 2024. As of 9-1-17 it is $1.81 per share.
Kiwi AustEcon (1 year ago)
thanks for the info. No judgment. Sad reality about the conflict between environment and gold. Sad indeed.
If they go and dig that mine and fail to take a precaution using the 'technology' they say they'll use, a fine won't quite cover the damage that would be caused.

Kurt Patterson (1 year ago)
jonathan lee Actually, they do. They come from the opposite end. They are very keen on the reality of resource depletion and ecosystem damage. Very keen. Their strategy seems to be to secure, gather and protect these resources for China.

Fuck the fish, there's £500 billion of gold there? you could spend a few million on an artificial lake/river somewhere else, and use the mine for the advancement of human kind, all those precious metals will drive material price/rarity down, allowing cheaper and more research to be conducted, cheaper technology manufacturing etc. Fuck the fish, salmon isn't endangered anyway.

Ibelieve mining can be done responsible. But the problem is the chemical reaction of copper on water and other material and the tailings must contain it properly

A few million? That yearly salmon harvest alone is already worth billions. The pollution that is inrepairable has an unlimited price tag. Besides that its not really gonna help you. ;)

GOLD is just a fuck'n MINERAL, why trading all the billions of years of evolving organic environment for this one mineral and starve and contaminate human race and other species? Oh yea it will recover a few more billion years after human race is wiped out.

Kyle White unfortunately money will always win over the ecosystem: ( ,logging and sustainable mining of salmon doesn't concern me as much as fracking and other forms of mining that are causing earthquakes,I'm afraid with the amount of human population and debt increase they will bypass any efforts to stop it
