(Adds background)

Feb 5 (Reuters) - Northern Dynasty Minerals Ltdsaid on Friday that its wholly-owned Pebble Limited Partnershipand the unit's former chief executive officer had been servedwith subpoenas.

The subpoenas to produce documents is related to a grandjury investigation apparently involving recordings of privateconversations regarding the Pebble mine project.

Tom Collier, CEO of Pebble Limited Partnership, the companytrying to develop Alaska's Pebble Mine project, had resigned inSeptember after his comments on elected and regulatory officialsin the U.S. state were covertly videotaped and released by anenvironmental activist group.

The comments by Tom Collier had embellished both his and thecompany's relationships with elected officials and federalrepresentatives in Alaska, including Governor Michael Dunleavy,Senators Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan and seniorrepresentatives of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).

The mine, one of the world's largest copper and golddeposits, has been through a roller coaster of regulation overthe past 13 years. Many opponents say the mine would permanentlydamage Alaska's Bristol Bay watershed, an ecosystem thatsupports the world's largest salmon runs.

The USACE in November issued its final decision denying akey water permit for the contentious Pebble Mine in Alaska,putting the project's future in doubt.

Pebble Limited filed an appeal with the U.S. Army Corps ofEngineers (USACE) over the decision, Northern Dynasty said inJanuary.(Reporting by Arathy S Nair in Bengaluru; Editing by AnilD'Silva and Aurora Ellis)
