The agreement is exclusive to develop Alaska and provides an open door to further development in the Lower 48.

Trilogy Metals

Trilogy Metals reported the public release of the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Ambler Mining District Industrial Access Project in late March.

Following the US Bureau of Land Management releasing the EIS, the final step in the permitting process for the project is the issuance of the Record of Decision by the BLM and the issuance of the Clean Water Act Section 404 permit from the US Army Corp of Engineers. Trilogy Metals expects these two items to be issued concurrently within the next couple of months.


Bristol Bay Native Corporation's (BBNC) subsidiary Bristol Bay Resource Investments acquired a 15 percent stake in Diamond Point and its main asset, Diamond Point Quarry. Iliaska Environmental, a wholly owned subsidiary of Igiugig Village Council (IVC), owns the remaining 85 percent.

Diamond Point Quarry is believed to contain 30 million to 40 million cubic yards of high-quality hard rock. Given the location of the quarry on Cook Inlet tidewater, IVC and BBNC believe Diamond Point offers a promising source of rock material for infrastructure projects in Anchorage, Kodiak, and the Alaska Peninsula. Diamond Point will complete further tests of the rock material in the quarry with the goal of selling material this summer. |
