Pebble visiting Iliamna Friday, October 12

The Pebble Partnership is hosting a community luncheon in Iliamna Friday as part of its effort to reach out to small groups to explain the proposed Pebble mine. Last month at the Denver Gold Forum, Northern Dynasty Minerals CEO Ron Thiessen said the company is “committed to repositioning Pebble” and will focus on smaller meetings starting in local communities and working its way out to the region at large and maybe even into the Lower 48. The leader of this effort is General Mark Hamilton, who has been meeting with Rotary Clubs, the business community, and other organizations with the presentation “A New Path Forward.”

The luncheon in Iliamna starts at 11:45 at the Pebble North Hangar. Attendees can expect Pebble updates, introductions to Pebble staff and a chance for a total of $500 in door prizes, one round-trip ticket on Iliamna Air Taxi, and some “Pebble Swag.”
