The following quotes in the Against section of the article caught my eye.

"It may not meet this best interest standard to extract Alaska's finite mineral resources under a low tax regime."

So does this mean a high tax regime is good for the state? Now is that state government or people of the state?

"Increasing taxes can bring the cost of mineral development more in line with the true cost of mining and ultimately lead to savings for society as a whole."

There it is in black and white. Oh yah, they are looking for donations to carry on such worthy work.
