MAGNITUDE 5.5 EARTHQUAKES STRIKE NEAR ALASKA’S RED DOG ZINC MINE

A report said the quakes, which struck minutes apart, were centered just a few miles southeast of Red Dog Mine, the world’s largest producer of zinc, which is operated by Canadian mining company Teck Resources.

The quake was extremely shallow, the USGS said.
