Donlin Gold is committed to responsible development. To provide a foundation for responsible development, an extensive environmental baseline-study program has been ongoing since 1996. Resources and topics in the baseline-study program include:
Fish and aquatic resources
Hydrology/Ground and surface water quality and quantity
Marine and river
Stream and sediment
What is done with the information gathered from the baseline studies?
Data from these studies are used in the planning and design of the mine, and to establish environmental conditions prior to project development. This data has been submitted to regulatory agencies as part of the permitting process.
