Six people described as familiar with its plans told Politico on Saturday that the Trump administration plans to block Pebble Mine, a proposed copper and gold mine near the headwaters of a major U.S. salmon fishery in Alaska. The administration’s rejection of the Pebble Mine project is expected to come after Trump faced pressure to stop it from GOP mega-donor Andy Sabin, Bass Pro Shops CEO Johnny Morris and the his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., Politico reported.
