    Elton McGahan, Post Office Box 8013, Nikiski, Alaska 99635, states that the purpose is to is to conduct placer mining activities for the recovery of gold. Work being proposed involves using heavy equipment to strip the vegetation and upper layers of the soil in 150-foot by 75-foot blocks (cuts) in rows parallel to Kal Creek. The stripped vegetation and topsoil would be stockpiled along the edges of the cuts. One to two feet of the overburden material in the now exposed cuts would then be ripped and excavated every couple of days as it thaws, until the pay layer is reached. This excavated overburden material would be stockpiled along the edge of the cuts separately from the vegetation and topsoil. Once the exposed pay layer thaws, it would be excavated and hauled to the wash plant for processing. Tailings from the processing would then be hauled back and discharged into the cuts. Stockpiled overburden would be spread over the tailings, and the cut contoured closely to mimic pre-mine conditions. Lastly, the topsoil and vegetation are spread over the contoured ground to facilitate recovery of vegetation. The project site is located within Sections 1 and 12, T. 27 N., R. 21 E. and Sections 6-7, T. 27 N., R. 22 E., Copper River Meridian; USGS Quad Map Eagle A-1; Latitude 64.141876º N., Longitude -141.187177º W.; approximately 23 miles east of Chicken, Alaska.

    Glacier Oil and Gas Company, 601 West 5th Avenue, Suite 310, Anchorage, Alaska 99501, states that the purpose is to expand the Badami Oil Field to include up to 10 wells. Work being proposed is to excavate a 9.2-acre gravel pit in wetlands and discharge 38,000 cubic yards of the overburden into 2.0-acres of adjacent wetlands. To discharge 161,300 cubic yards of fill material from the new gravel pit into 12.75-acres of wetlands to construct an 800-foot long access road and pad for 10 new oil wells. To discharge 810 cubic yards of a sand/slurry mix into 0.02-acres of wetlands to construct a 2.5-mile pipeline from the new pad to an existing oil production facility. The road surface would be 36-feet wide with a minimum depth of 5-feet at centerline and 2:1 side slopes. Culverts would be installed to maintain natural drainage patterns. The gravel pad surface would be 660-feet by 660-feet with a variable depth of 5- to 7-feet and 2:1 side slopes. The pipeline would be constructed aboveground on one or two (8-inch to 24-inch diameter each) vertical support members spaced approximately 55 to 60 feet apart. The project site is located near Latitude 70.13155º N., Longitude 147.0089º W.; North Slope Borough; inland 1.3 miles from Mikkelsen Bay and approximately 34 miles east of Deadhorse, Alaska.

    Mr. Jim Arlington of Afognak Leasing, LLC., 3909 Arctic Boulevard, Suite 500, Anchorage, Alaska, 99503, states that the purpose is to provide storage space for oil & gas operators on the North Slope of Alaska. Work being proposed is to place approximately 182,000 cubic yards of fill material into 21.88 acres of Palustrine wetlands to construct the Cama’i gravel pad to support operational and logistical needs of various North Slope oil and gas operators in an area that minimizes the distance operators have to travel to get their supplies. The pad would be used to store movable buildings, camps, oilfield support equipment, supplies and modules. The space could be used for vehicle and equipment storage and as a laydown yard with adequate space for moving equipment around the modules and facilities contained on the pad. The proposed project would be accomplished in three phases on an as needed basis. All side slopes are planned to be 3:1 with a five-foot thick pad. Material for the project would come from Mine Site C unless another alternative of comparable quality and cost becomes available. All placement of fill would occur outside of the bird nesting season. The project site is located within Sections 4 & 5, T. 10 N., R. 8 E., Section 33, T. 11 N., R. 8 E., Umiat Meridian; USGS Quad Map Harrison Bay B-1; Latitude 70.2557º N., Longitude 150.1408º W.; North Slope Borough, Kuparuk River Unit, approximately 20 miles due east of Nuiqsut, Alaska.
