It's Friday at the end of a long week of Pebble news: 

Monday

Secretly recorded "Pebble Tapes" are released, with top Pebble executives describing a vision for a 180-year mine. They also spoke candidly about their connections with regulatory officials at the Corps of Engineers and Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy. Pebble CEO Tom Collier discusses his political ties and makes observations about Alaska Senators Sullivan and Murkowski.

Tuesday
  • Dunleavy, Murkowski and Sullivan sharply criticize Pebble executives.
  • The Corps of Engineers says there are "falsehoods" and "inaccuracies" in the recordings.

Wednesday
  • Pebble CEO Tom Collier resigns amid the furor. Former CEO John Shively will take the helm until a replacement can be found.
  • Al Gross, candidate for Sullivan's seat, uses video from the "Pebble Tapes" in an attack ad accusing Sullivan of "being quiet" on the Pebble mine.
Thursday
  • Sullivan unequivocally says "No Pebble mine" on Twitter. Murkowski follows up with heart emojis and a GIF of a salmon.
  • Pebble Partnership says it will need to restore confidence and trust in the project.
