Red Gold

The Bristol Bay region of southwest Alaska is home to the Kvichak and Nushagak rivers, the two most prolific sockeye salmon runs left in the world. Two mining companies, Northern Dynasty Minerals and Anglo American have partnered to propose an open=pit and underground mine at the headwaters of these two rivers. The exploration site is the second largest combined deposit of copper, gold and molybdenum ever discovered and has an estimated value of more than $300 billion. Despite promises of a clean project by officials, the accident-plagued history of hard rock mining has wrought one of the biggest land use battles Alaska has eve faced. Documenting the growing unrest among native, commercial, and sport fishermen, Red Gold is a portrait of a unique way of life that won’t survive if the salmon don’t return with Bristol Bay’s tide.
