She may not be singing just yet but the fat lady is definitely warming up.

The Environmental Protection Agency has proposed protections for some Bristol Bay drainages, a move that, if finalized, would block attempts to develop the Pebble Mine.

The EPA in a statement said the proposal would bar discharges of dredged or fill material into the waters of the U.S. within the mine site footprint proposed by the developer, the Pebble Limited Partnership.
