Pebble Says Economic Benefits Run Into the Millions

The Pebble Partnership today trumpeted the release of an economic study done on the Pebble Project. The study was authored by an independent reviewer, IHS Global, and suggests the economic impact of the Project could run into the millions.

 

The report says the Project  has the potential to support more than 16,000 total jobs during its construction phase, roughly 14,700 in the initial production phase, and more than 16,600 jobs during the potential subsequent development phases.

 

It also suggests Pebble would pay the Lake and Peninsula Borough an average of around $30 million annually in taxes, and have an operating budget of around $1 billion annually.
