Growing the Economy



Mining is an integral part of Alaska’s growing, diverse economy, and today mining revenues are among the top sources of corporate tax payments to Alaska state government, in addition to providing substantial revenues to local governments around the state.

Mine spending also provides a tremendous economic boost to remote, rural regions where there is limited potential for other new investment, development or job creation.

The secondary benefits of mining operations are felt across the economy in the transportation, retail, engineering, construction, supply, and services sectors, where large and small businesses hire workers and invest in equipment and facilities as part of their work for the mining industry
