In operation since 1989, Red Dog is a zinc-lead mine located in Northwest Alaska, near Kotzebue, and one of the world’s largest producer of zinc concentrate.
The mine was developed under an innovative operating agreement between the NANA Regional Corporation, Inc. (NANA), a Native corporation owned by the Inupiat people of Northwest Alaska, and Teck Alaska Incorporated, a U.S. subsidiary of Teck Resources Limited, a diversified mining company headquartered in Vancouver, Canada. Teck is a significant producer of copper, metallurgical coal, zinc and specialty metals, and has interests in several oil sands development assets.
Red Dog Operations upholds the highest environmental standards and we are committed to the communities in which we operate, while providing Alaskans and Alaska’s Native people with economic benefits and opportunities.
