As part of the commitment between Donlin Gold (Donlin), Calista Corporation (Calista) and The Kuskokwim Corporation (TKC) to maintain a well-defined process for communications, dialogue and problem solving as needed among these partners and with the broader community, the partners established the Donlin Advisory Technical Review and Oversight Committee (DATROC) in 2018. Through the DATROC, Donlin will seek the views of its partners on items, including but not limited to, environmental protection, reclamation, subsistence uses, impacts on communities, impacts on cultural resources and reasonably minimizing conflict among uses. In addition to ongoing public outreach activities, a communications protocol will be developed through which the results of permit-driven monitoring programs can be shared and project-related issues can be identified, tracked, and resolved using the DATROC structure. The communications protocol would also encompass a variety of issues or concerns, including barging activities, for example.
