Governor visits controversial mine project north of Haines

Visit happened same day a crucial permit was remanded

Dunleavy, along with his chief of staff Ben Stevens and Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Jason Brune were flown by Constantine company helicopter to the site, roughly 35 miles north of Haines, on Sept. 9, according to vice president of community and external affairs for Constantine, Liz Cornejo.
