Northern Dynasty Minerals Ltd (NDM):
  • The chief executive of Pebble Limited Partnership, the company trying to develop Alaska's Pebble Mine project, resigned on Wednesday after his comments on elected and regulatory officials in the U.S. state were covertly videotaped and released by an environmental activist group, its Canadian parent said
  • The comments by Tom Collier embellished both his and the company's relationships with elected officials and federal representatives in Alaska, including Governor Michael Dunleavy, Senators Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan and senior representatives of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Northern Dynasty Minerals said
  • "The unethical manner in which these tapes were acquired does not excuse the comments that were made, or the crass way they were expressed," Northern Dynasty CEO Ron Thiessen said in a statement
Tesla Inc (TSLA):
  • The company’s plan to produce lithium for electric vehicle batteries close to its Nevada Gigafactory faces stark challenges from the outset, including an onerous permitting process, uncertain access to water and questions about unproven methodologies

  • The plan drew backlash almost immediately, with critics describing Musk's plan as too simplistic and light on details
