Livengood Gold Project, Alaska (2008-Ongoing): The Livengood Project is located in a historic mining district in Interior Alaska. Exploration activities on the identified lode portion of the project have been intermittently ongoing since the 1950s. Recent exploration work has identified a multimillion-ounce, surface, bulk-mineable deposit.
3PPI has been involved in the Livengood project, a large hardrock gold exploration property, since early 2008. 3PPI has provided environmental management and permitting services and surface and groundwater sampling, and are currently completing the preliminary wetlands determinations and digital mapping needed to support a successful permit application. Like Donlin, the Livengood study area has expanded, increasing from approximately 39,000 acres to over 61,000-acres in the last five years. Products from the field work for the 61,000 acre project area completed to date include detailed vegetation mapping, jurisdictional wetland determinations and mapping, National Wetland Inventory (NWI), and hydrogeomorphic (HGM) wetland classifications. As of 2013, over 25,000 polygons have been delineated and coded, creating a working basemap from which project mine engineers and environmental staff can develop potential alternatives.
3PPI work on the Livengood Project is based out of our Fairbanks office, with support from other team members as needed.
