Peak Gold, LLC's stated purpose is to define the potential extent of mineralization and associated economic value of that mineralization, on lands predominantly owned by the Tetlin Tribal Council. The duration of the project is dependent on drilling results and delineation of economic mineral resources and is anticipated to continue for about 5 years.
LOCATION: The project site is located within Section 7, T. 16 N., R. 13 E., Copper River Meridian; USGS Quad Map Tanacross A-4; Latitude 63.18259º N., Longitude 142.8923º W.; near Tok, Alaska.
PROPOSED WORK: Discharge of fill material into approximately 5 acres of scrub-shrub and wetlands for the construction of permanent and temporary access roads and drill pads for mineral exploration. The project boundary encompasses over 32,000 acres with about 76 percent of the areas classified as uplands; the majority of wetlands occurring in valley bottoms or north-facing slopes with permafrost. The majority of the drilling areas are proposed in uplands. Some drilling pads would require access through wetlands typically on north-facing slopes. Construction of access roads and drill pads in wetlands would be done during the winter months to minimize disturbance. Generally, reclamation on wetland sites would be initiated immediately following exploration drilling and the ground is still frozen.
All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-8), dated
June 22, 2017.
