Seabridge Gold responds to a misunderstanding about Unuk River published in Juneau Empire article

In an August 5, 2019 Juneau Empire article titled “Murkowski, Sullivan urge action on mine cleanup”, Rob Sanderson, Jr. Vice President, Central Council of the Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska was quoted as saying, “the Unuk River is dying”.

On August 9, 2019,  Seabridge Gold’s Brent Murphy wrote a letter to Mr. Sanderson to correct a misunderstanding that mining activity is somehow responsible for impacting the Unuk River. The letter also states that Seabridge Gold has been conducting ongoing water quality monitoring on the Unuk River at the BC/Alaska border for more than 12 years and have seen no degradation in water quality.
