Pebble Limited Partnership CEO Tom Collier resigned on Wednesday after an environmental group released secretly recorded videos of Collier and Ron Thiessen, president of Pebble parent company Northern Dynasty Minerals, discussing their connections and influence with Alaska politicians and regulators.
Northern Dynasty also issued an apology to “all Alaskans,” according to a statement released by the company. Northern Dynasty’s senior management and board of directors accepted Collier’s resignation, the statement said.
Collier declined to comment and said he would no longer speak with news media.

Rumor has it that Collier will still get his bonus if the mine gets its permit and survives litigation.
