  • POA-1995-120, Crooked Creek

    Expiration date: 4/30/2016

    The purpose of Donlin Gold’s proposed project is to profitably produce gold from ore reserves owned by Calista Corporation, an Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) corporation, utilizing open-pit mining methods and conventional, proven milling processes suitable for the characteristics of the ore reserves and for application in remote western Alaska. The need for the proposed project is to enable Calista Corporation and The Kuskokwim Corporation (TKC) to maximize economic benefits for their Native shareholders, from lands selected under ANCSA for their mineral potential, by producing gold to meet world-wide demand. Gold is an established commodity with international markets. Donlin Gold is proposing the development of an open pit, hardrock gold mine. The proposed Donlin Gold project includes land leased from Calista Corporation (Calista), The Kuskokwim Corporation and CIRI. All three are Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) regional corporations. Calista leases include a portion of the total surface estate and all of the sub-surface estate. Calista holds the subsurface (mineral) estate for ANCSA lands in the region. The Kuskokwim Corporation also owns a portion of the surface estate potentially impacted. CIRI owns a portion of the surface estate upon which a portion of the proposed pipeline would be built. The remainder of potentially affected lands (principally pipeline impacts) are owned primarily by the State of Alaska or U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
