30 residents from Bethel and area villages visited the Fort Knox Gold Mine near Fairbanks on Tuesday. They included representatives from Tribes, City Councils, local businesses, and regional organizations AVCP, YKHC and LKSD. The group toured the open pit mine, which would be similiar to the proposed Donlin Gold Mine upriver near Crooked Creek. Donlin Gold sponsored the day trip.
