Colossal Alaska gold project quietly winning approval

In the heart of Alaska’s remote southwestern Kuskokwim Mountains, two Canadian mining companies could soon get the green light to dig a massive open-pit mine to access what they describe as one of the largest undeveloped gold deposits in the world.

Sometime this month, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is set to release its final environmental impact statement on the Donlin Gold mine, a partnership of NovaGold Resources Inc. of Vancouver and Barrick Gold Corp. of Toronto. The government’s final decision on the project is expected during the second half of the year.
