Mr. Jason Otteson, with NM Operations LLC (NM Ops), states that the project purpose is to produce commercial quantities of precious metals from alluvial deposits discovered on State of Alaska mining claims.  Work being proposed includes:  To recover precious metals from alluvial deposits in previously mined and in un-mined stream valleys on State of Alaska mining claims owned by Mammoth Valley Mining LLC and occurring on adjacent areas of Quartz Creek, Dahl Creek, North Fork, Joe Creek and Atlas Creek, which were previously mined under separate Regional General Permit (GP) POA-2014-55. Due to the fact these individual areas are operated as one mine, NM Operations LLC has submitted plans for the four areas under the following APMAs for an Individual Permit (404) that combines the activities of all four mine sites under a single plan and bond under F-9398 as an after-the-fact individual permit to cover impacts that exceeded coverage under the General Permit (GP) POA-2014-55 last year, and to cover proposed future impacts, as well as reclamation and restoration of aquatic resources.
