Gold mining in Alaska

I read an article is related to Gold mining plans for Alaska. Alaska has been found a major industry and impetus for exploration and settlement. In 1848, Russian used to discovered placer gold, but they did not produced. Then, the United States is trying to gold mining after the United States acquired the territory from Russia.

Environmental activists urged Americans to prevent other countries’ miners who are mining one of Alaska’s most abundant tracts of wilderness. It is not allow foreign companies to plunder Americans’ resources, so they have to again with them, and try to protect their gold sources. The companies named Anglo American, the chairman and chief executive meet people in London. He said “the company was currently in “very early stage exploration” of Pebble. “There’s no mine plan,” he said. “If we can’t build it in a way that safeguards the environment and natural beauty of Alaska, we won’t go ahead.” It is a good response to let everyone know this is their territory, no one can destroy their communities, decimate, and environment.
