The PBS public affairs series Frontline turns its focus this week to the controversial issue of mining at Pebble and the potential risks to fishing in Bristol Bay. Read the PBS Frontline report, "Treasure Hunt: The Battle Over Alaska's Mega Mine," then watch "Alaska Gold," schedule to air Tuesday, July 24, on PBS stations. Both pieces detail the controversial issue of mining at Pebble vs. fishing in Bristol Bay.
Frontline travels to Alaska to "investigate the fault lines of a growing battle between those who depend on this extraordinary fishery for a living, the mining companies who are pushing for Pebble, and the political framework that will ultimately decide the outcome."
See the trailer for Alaska Gold. Air times on KAKM (Check your local listings for other stations and times).:
