Earthquakes and Pebble Mine

Th proposed Pebble Mine has ignited serious controversy between different factions of Alaskans. One question I found fascinating was the possibility of seismic activity in the area. There are two major faults that scientists studied for this project. Find out more by reading this fact sheet created by the Pebble Watch group: Geotechnical and Seismic Studies. I would use this as an extension assignment that has some review items.

    This is really interesting!! Some people are only debating Pebble Mine because of the salmon, when really it may affect so much more. Thanks for this link!
