Possible Future NEPA Projects

Possible future project proposals that will be subjected to the NEPA process


Developers that are currently studying the environmental and economic feasibility of possible projects but have not yet defined a specific project for which to submit permit applications and thereby initiate the NEPA process include:

  • Pebble exploration / feasibility study
  • Donlin Creek exploration / feasibility study
  • Chuitina exploration / feasibility study
  • Livengood exploration / feasibility study


The photo at right shows all of the studies, permit applications, amendments, etc. that the agencies required before the final two green EIS volumes in front were finally issued with a Record of Decision for the Pogo Gold Mine.
