The US Army Corps of Engineers invites you to participate in the Donlin Gold Project Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) process. Donlin Gold, LLC, proposes to develop an open pit gold mine in Southwest
Alaska, 10 miles north of the village of Crooked Creek on the Kuskokwim River. A 313-mile natural gas pipeline from Cook Inlet to the mine site is also proposed as the energy source for the mine.
The proposed mine requires many federal and state permits. The EIS provides the basis for the US Army Corps of Engineers and other federal agencies to evaluate federal permit applications.
Your input can make a real difference in understanding:
- Issues and concerns that should be addressed in the EIS
- The way land and resources might be affected by the project
- Ideas on alternatives and ways to minimize impacts
