2014 was the 25th anniversary for the Red Dog Mine, which began operation in 1989. An article evaluating the mine’s effect on Northwest Arctic Borough Communities will appear in the August 2015 Journal of Economic Development, which focuses on Alaska. The analysis evaluated Red Dog’s effect on communities in four ways: 1) jobs and income, 2) governance, 3) education, and 4) subsistence. This case study provides lessons for development in other rural communities. A verbal presentation of the analysis is the focus of the presentation.
