Pebble Watch Explores: Geotechnical and Seismic Studies

Planning a large mine development requires consideration of the geotechnics and seismicity of an area to assess earthquake risk. Pebble Watch explores this topic in a new fact sheet, with an overview on the basics of geotechnics and seismicity, how they relate to mining and permitting, and what the Pebble Limited Partnership Environmental Baseline Document says on the issue.

This fact sheet will give readers a basic understanding of the topic in advance of Keystone Center’s Independent Science Panel on Geology and Geochemistry, Oct. 2 and 3. The panel is offered by the Pebble Limited Partnership and the Keystone Center to discuss information included in the Environmental Baseline Document.
