Federal Officials To Meet With Miners

Top Bureau of Land Management officials are scheduled to meet with Forty Mile area gold miners tomorrow (Fri). The meeting follows recent year's tensions, highlighted by an August 2013 Environmental Protection Agency lead, armed raid of several mining operations. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, some miners continue to conflict with regulators.  

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
