POA-2021-00537, Goldstream Creek_PN

Published Jan. 19, 2022
Expiration date: 2/17/2022

Big Sky Exploration, Cary Williams, states the purpose is to remove overburden soils and material in order to recover gold and washed gravels. The applicant proposes the discharge of approximately 20 acres of fill material in Waters of the U.S. including wetlands per year during placer mining activities and site rehabilitation activities within Goldstream Creek and adjacent wetlands. Mining pit dimensions would vary dependent on location. Prior to mining, Goldstream Creek would be permanently diverted along the north side of the existing mine pit ponds a distance of about 5,000 linear feet. The diversion channel would reenter its historic channel just below the west end of the existing mine pit. Near the west end of the stream diversion channel a large culvert would be placed to allow water flow and mining vehicle access. The project site is located within Latitude 64.941851º N., Longitude 147.743299º,  left on Goldstream Road for 0.5 mile; left on Bethlehem Court for 0.5 mile; right onto tailings for 1.5 miles, in Fox, Alaska.
