Plantz: Green's Creek wants to be "good neighbor"

SITKA, ALASKA Green’s Creek mine just wants to be a good neighbor. Ron Plantz, the community relations manager for Green’s Creek, told the Sitka Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday (5-26-10) that the twenty-year-old operation on northern Admiralty Island prefers to keep a low profile, and to stay out of the press. Plantz, nevertheless, is on the road in the wake of Anchorage businessman Bob Gillam, who has been an outspoken opponent of the proposed Pebble Mine near Bristol Bay.
