True North Mine

Project Description


The True North Mine is located approximately 26 miles northeast of Fairbanks, Alaska.  It is operated by Fairbanks Gold Mining, Inc. (FGMI), a wholly owned subsidiary of Kinross Gold Corporation.  The mine is located primarily on lands owned by the University of Alaska and the State of Alaska.  True North Mine was permitted and put into production from 2001 to 2004.  It produced 11.7 million tons of ore which was hauled nine miles to the Fort Knox mill.  In 2009, FGMI made the decision to forego further mining and exploration at the site, and began final reclamation.  In 2010, 149 acres of the site were graded, growth media was placed on 52 acres, and 270 acres were scarified, seeded, and fertilized.  By 2011, the major earthwork was completed leaving a small area of materials to be salvaged. As of summer 2014 the site was essentially fully revegetated and will be monitored for several more years to assure long-term stability.
