JUNEAU — The group promoting a mine project near the headwaters of Bristol Bay donated $150,000 to defeat an initiative aimed at Pebble Mine in the waning days of the election.
Records filed with the Alaska Public Offices Commission show Pebble Limited Partnership made the donation Sept. 26. It also made an in-kind contribution, of $4,168.11, Oct. 3.
The measure was on the ballot in Lake and Peninsula Borough, where municipal elections are conducted by mail. Ballots had to be postmarked by Oct. 4.
