Northern Dynasty owns 100% of the Pebble Limited Partnership, which is advancing the world-class Pebble Project in Alaska towards permitting and development.
The Pebble Project is the one of the world's most important copper-gold-molybdenum-silver resources. At a 0.30% copper equivalent (CuEQ) cut-off1, the Pebble resource comprises:
6.44 billion tonnes in the Measured and Indicated category grading 0.40% copper, 0.34 g/t gold and 240 ppm molybdenum and 1.66 g/t silver, containing 57 billion pounds of copper, 70 million ounces of gold, 3.4 billion pounds of molybdenum and 344 million ounces of silver; and
4.46 billion tonnes in the Inferred category grading 0.25% copper, 0.26 g/t gold and 222 ppm molybdenum and 1.19 g/t silver, containing 24.5 billion pounds of copper, 37 million ounces of gold, 2.2 billion pounds of molybdenum and 170 million ounces of silver.
A 2013 study authored by IHS Global Insight found the Pebble Project has the potential to support 15,000 American jobs and contribute more than $2.5 billion annually to US GDP over decades of production.
Key elements of the company's 2017 strategy include:
Securing a project partner(s) with the financial depth to permit, build and operate a modern mine at Pebble; and
Initiating project permitting by the end of the year with a project design that is smaller than previously contemplated and more responsive to stakeholder concerns.
