Researcher withdraws from Pebble study review

- JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A researcher has withdrawn from participation in the upcoming review of studies released by the group behind a massive mine project in southwest Alaska. University of Washington professor David Montgomery says the review process is flawed. He says it attempts to evaluate the adequacy of studies released by the Pebble Limited Partnership, without the context of a mine plan. The Keystone Center is assembling the panels on behalf of the Pebble Partnership. The first round of hearings is scheduled to begin Tuesday in Anchorage. The group's Todd Bryan says Montgomery is the only researcher he's aware of to have expressed this point of view. He says the task is to evaluate the adequacy of the studies, which will be used in mine planning. Keystone excused another scientist for alleged bias.
