JUNEAU — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency proposed restrictions Friday that would essentially block development of a planned massive gold-and-copper mine near the headwaters of a world premier salmon fishery in Alaska.
The announcement came as the EPA was being sued by Pebble Limited Partnership, the group behind the proposed Pebble Mine, and the state of Alaska for allegedly exceeding its authority.
The U.S. Forest Service warned Alaskans that the popular ice caves on the west side of the Mendenhall Glacier were unstable. By Friday morning a tour guide reported that the warning had proved prophetic — a large portion of the caves’ entrance had collapsed.
