Feb 5 (Reuters) - Northern Dynasty Minerals Ltd said on Friday that its wholly-owned Pebble Limited Partnership and the unit’s former chief executive officer had been served with subpoenas.
The subpoenas to produce documents is related to a grand jury investigation apparently involving recordings of private conversations regarding the Pebble mine project.
Tom Collier, CEO of Pebble Limited Partnership, the company trying to develop Alaska’s Pebble Mine project, had resigned in September after his comments on elected and regulatory officials in the U.S. state were covertly videotaped and released by an environmental activist group.
