NEW YORK — The United States might be unable to make up the growing gap between copper consumption and production due to the delay in further development and permitting of Northern Dynasty Minerals Ltd.’s mine project in southwestern Alaska, according to American Resource Policy Network (ARPN) president Daniel McGroarty.

Northern Dynasty’s project description for the copper-gold-molybdenum Pebble Mine project, with estimated deposits of at least 55 billion of pounds copper, is 99 percent complete. But resistance from local environmental groups and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency over the mine’s potential impact on the Bristol Bay fish population has delayed permitting (amm.com, June 4, 2012).....
