Cordova Ranger District

Public Scoping Notice

The Cordova Ranger District is reviewing a proposal from Chugach Alaska Corporation to conduct mineral material exploration on lands near Secret Cove in Port Gravina. The Chugach National Forest is the steward of the surface estate which was acquired as part of an Exon Valdez oil spill (EVOS) settlement conveyance project. In this area, the Chugach Alaska Corporation owns the subsurface estate and retains outstanding mineral rights to the subsurface.

The proposal would involve using a class 450 excavator to enable a tracked drill to access two test sites. At each of the two sites, a series of drill holes would be followed with blasting operations to enable an evaluation of the subsurface materials. Operations would occur during the summer and fall of 2014 and occur over an approximate 14-day period. Surface disturbance would be kept to a minimum during operations and no more than ½ mile of temporary access route would be utilized during exploration activities. The project would occur in lands designated as EVOS Acquired Lands Management Area (221) in the Chugach Forest Plan. These lands are also part of the Fidalgo-Gravina Inventoried Roadless Area.

For location maps and more information contact Bob Behrends at (907) 424-4729 or Robert Skorkowsky at (907) 424-4742.

Comments identifying specific issues and concerns are requested by August 22, 2014 and can be emailed to the attention of Bob Behrends, PO Box 280, Cordova, Alaska 99574 or emailed to rbehrends@fs.fed.us.
