Fairbanks, AK - Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority held a two-day meeting this week in Fairbanks. AIDEA is working on an application to begin the permitting process for an industrial road that would access the Ambler mining district.
The process requires a federal Environmental Impact Statement –that could take years. Mike Catsi is AIDEA’s Business Development and Communications Director. He said the $26.25 million in state funding that has already been spent has gone toward early baseline studies.
