This committee focuses on the relationship between the Donlin Gold project and subsistence activities within the Kuskokwim River drainage. This committee will hold its first meeting in fall 2021, after members are recruited through an application process in summer 2021.
The Subsistence Community Advisory Committee Will:
- Receive and distribute information on Donlin Gold’s plans, operations and monitoring activities.
- Communicate information of local subsistence activities and traditional knowledge as it relates to information shared by Donlin.
- Provide a forum for stakeholders to discuss potential issues of concern related to Donlin Gold’s plans, operations or monitoring activities on subsistence activities, wildlife or habitat.
- Make recommendations to DATROC related to subsistence and assist DATROC into developing and periodically updating a subsistence plan for lands and waters affected by the Project.
Committee Membership: Designated Seats
Membership of this committee consists of the following designated seats. Each member serves a three-year term, with terms staggered by seat.
This committee will meet twice per year, in the spring and fall, during periods that do not conflict with important subsistence activities. The first meeting is tentatively scheduled for fall 2021. If it is not safe or feasible to meet in person, the committee may hold meetings remotely or by phone until in-person meetings can be resumed.
