Groups Appeal EPA’s Red Dog Decision

Canada’s Teck Resources Ltd. says environmental and Native groups have appealed a decision by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to renew a permit for the company’s Red Dog mine in Alaska. Teck said Wednesday that several environmental and tribal groups appealed the EPA’s renewal of a water discharge permit for the mine. Teck says the entire permit will be stayed.
